Speaking at a press conference in Poland, the Prime Minister acknowledged a picture that emerged on social media showing the spy walking behind her in Downing Street.

Ukraine's SBU security service arrested Stanislav Yezhov on Wednesday evening in the capital, Kiev. In another he is seen leaving Downing Street.

The SBU said he was detained at his workplace.

Yezhov's wife is a Russian citizen and he could have been blackmailed or pushed to work for Russia, he added, urging him to cooperate with the investigation.

Mr Groysman said in a Facebook post the spy had "long been working in the interests of a hostile government", but it wasn't clear if he was already passing secrets to the Kremlin at the time of the Downing Street meeting.

A TRANSLATOR welcomed into Downing Street and photographed behind Prime Minister Theresa May is being held on suspicion of being a Russian SPY.


A statement posted on the SBU website [in Ukrainian] said: "Law enforcers found that an official was recruited by Russian intelligence agencies during a long-time foreign mission".

'He was respected. And he responsibly and diligently worked for the Russian special services'.

It supplied him with "special equipment" which was used to collect information about the "activities of [Ukrainian] government structures". The official gave data to the Russians through "electronic channels of communication".

Neither the PM nor the SBU named the position or name of the detained official, but he has been widely named as Stanislav Yezhov.

The man worked in Ukraine's cabinet of ministers where he would have had access to sensitive government information, as well as attending high-level meetings including with Theresa May and former US Vice President Joe Biden.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: 'We are aware of reporting about the arrest of Stanislav Yezhov in Ukraine. It is not our practice to comment on legal proceedings in other jurisdictions'.
