Zakharova: Ukrainian embassies continue to recruit cyber mercenaries

Zakharova accuses Ukrainian embassies of recruiting cyber mercenaries and provoking Russian nationals abroad. Ukraine waived visas for foreign fighters joining the International Legion of Territorial Defense.

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated that Russia is in possession of information that Ukrainian diplomats are ‘participating in provocations against Russian nationals in other countries’ as well as ‘recruiting mercenaries to be sent to the combat zone and also recruiting cyber mercenaries.’

Ukraine previously established the International Legion of Territorial Defense and waived visa requirements for foreign nationals coming to fight on Kyiv’s side.
