Censor.NET reports citing SBU press service that criminals were receiving international phone traffic from abroad, including Russia, via Internet by means of IP-telephony, bypassing international switching centers.
The traffic was subsequently interpreted by a specialized hardware-software telecommunications complex and transferred as local calls to networks of Ukrainian mobile phone service providers.
SBU halted operations of such complex in Kyiv together with experts from Ukrainian state frequency center.
The illegal equipment has been seized in a search in Kyiv. Persons responsible for its operation have been detained.
Criminals admitted their guilt and are providing testimony.
Criminal proceeding under part 2 art. 361 (unauthorized tampering into computer network operations) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine has been launched. Pre-trial investigation continues.
