The Security Service of Ukraine exposed a group of people who allegedly were engaged in mining bitcoins at the South Ukrainian NPP. The resource Online.ua reports about it with reference to the decision of the Central district court of Nikolaev. Checking the information is difficult, as the district court’s website is currently unavailable due to the influx of visitors.
During the check of the sensitive facility, SBU employees discovered an unauthorized connection of equipment for mining cryptocurrencies. Representatives of the National Guard of Ukraine who guarded the nuclear power plant may be involved in the offense.
The court decision stated that as a result of unauthorized connection, disclosure of information on the safety protection of nuclear power plants, which are state secrets, was disclosed. Based on materials from the SBU, criminal proceedings have been opened against employees of nuclear power plants.
