A local official who was believed to have helped the Russian forces was arrested by elite special forces in a raid on her basement near the city of Kharkiv.
Video footage of the local official, Nadiya Antonova, being swarmed by the Ukrainian Alpha Force troops along with secret intelligence agents who took her away in handcuffs had surfaced on the internet a few days prior.
Antonova was a secretary in the local council of her village. She is accused of providing intel to the Russian army, such as giving out the names of soldiers, police, and other Ukrainian forces that supported the local resistance to Russian military leaders.
She is also accused of forcing townsfolk to wear white armbands that symbolize support for Russian fighters who don white and orange armbands as opposed to yellow, green, and blue colors worn by Ukrainian troops.
