On the instructions of the Russians, the agent went around the company, recording the locations of workshops and warehouses with products on a map. He was supposed to pass the prepared "report" through his brother, who was in touch with the Russian special service.

According to the SBU, the Russians were primarily interested in the locations of design offices and production facilities that were relocated after the start of the full-scale invasion and where aircraft engines for combat helicopters and UAVs are manufactured.
