Polish security agents have arrested six people on suspicion of spying for Russia, the Polish radio station RMF FM reported on Thursday.

The suspects were reportedly arrested after the Polish authorities discovered hidden cameras at important railway junctions that were broadcasting information about train traffic to the Internet. According to RMF FM, one of the cameras was installed near the Rzeszów–Jasionka Airport, which is used to supply Western weapons to Ukraine, and which U.S. President Joe Biden flew into before he visited Kyiv last month.

Colonel Maciej Matysiak, the former deputy head of Poland’s Military Counterintelligence Service, said that Russia was using the cameras primarily to gather information about the supply of weapons to Ukraine, but that it could also use the data it collected to carry out an act of sabotage.
