Translator accused of spying for Russian Federation accompanied Ukraine PM on Ottawa visit

Translator accused of spying for Russian Federation accompanied Ukraine PM on Ottawa visit

Some news outlets reported that the Ukraine Intelligence Service arrested Yezhov who worked as an interpreter for Ukraine's Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman.

Yezhov is understood to have worked for Groysman as his interpreter and deputy head of protocol.

Ukraine's main security agency has arrested a senior government translator and accused him of being a Russian spy.

A TRANSLATOR welcomed into Downing Street and photographed behind Prime Minister Theresa May is being held on suspicion of being a Russian SPY.

"He enjoyed respect. He worked very responsibly, diligently and creatively for the Russian special services".

Asked about the spying allegation during a press conference today in Poland, where she is attending a summit, May said: "I'm aware of the reports in relation to the Ukrainian individual who attended Downing Street earlier in the summer".

'The action that's been taken is a matter for the Ukrainian authorities'.

Yezhov was also present for meetings between the Ukrainian government and the then-US vice-president Joe Biden in 2016.

In a detailed request for USA military assistance, the Ukrainian government asked the Pentagon to provide arms and ammunition, communications gear, intelligence support, aviation fuel and night-vision goggles, along with other items, according to officials briefed on the emergency Ukrainian appeal.

"It is known that he was recruited by the Russian special services during his work at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington several years ago", he said.

Yezhov was seen being led away in handcuffs on Ukranian television on Wednesday evening.

The SBU said in a statement late Wednesday the suspect "gathered information about government activities with special equipment" and passed it to his handlers.

Yezhov allegedly sent data back to his Moscow handles via electronic communication channels.

Mr Yezhov's home and workplace are now being searched by Ukrainian security services. US exporters can apply for direct commercial sales licences at any time and those are reviewed by the State Department on a case-by-case basis, she said.
