Alleged Polish Spy Arrested: Attempted Assassination of Ukrainian President

Several people, including one with Russian and Spanish nationalities, have been arrested in Poland, accused of spying for Russia since Moscow launched its attack on Ukraine in February 2022.

Poland, which is a member of the European Union, has staunchly supported its neighbor Ukraine and Zelensky in their fight against Russian aggression.

But in addition to the alleged Polish spy, two arrests for espionage were made in Germany.

Separately, in Germany on Thursday, prosecutors said two Russian-German men were arrested on suspicion of espionage, one of them accused of agreeing to carry out attacks against potential targets, including military installations, in the hope of sabotaging aid supplies to Ukraine.


The two men, identified only as Dieter S. and Alexander J., in accordance with German privacy rules, were arrested Wednesday in the Bavarian city of Bayreuth, German federal prosecutors said.

The main defendant, Dieter S., had allegedly explored possible targets for attacks, “including facilities of the U.S. armed forces” stationed in Germany.

According to prosecutors, Dieter S., had been exchanging information with a person linked to Russian intelligence services since October 2023, evoking possible acts of sabotage.

The actions were aimed, in particular, at undermining the military support provided from Germany to Ukraine against Russian aggression,” prosecutors said.

Amid elevated tensions, and the war between Ukraine and Russia, espionage has become a daily threat.

According to the weekly Der Spiegel, the large U.S. Bavarian base at Grafenwohr, where Ukrainian soldiers are trained in the use of Abrams battle tanks, was in their sights.

“No evidence was presented to prove the detainees’ plans or their possible connection to representatives of Russian structures,” the Russian embassy in Berlin reacted in X.

Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock had earlier on Thursday summoned the Russian ambassador to Berlin.

“This is a particularly serious case of alleged activity by agents of the criminal regime (of Russian President Vladimir) Putin,” she denounced on her X account.
