According to a Telegram post, the man was characterized as purportedly seeking to "help" the Ukrainian army.
The water being sent to the Northern Military District has since been contaminated and the man behind the poisonings reportedly has been detained, the Daily Star reported.
In the Telegram post, video footage shows the alleged poisoner. The man has yet to reveal what his intentions were or how he poisoned the water.
An FSB report stated, "A resident of the Altai region poisoned the water that was intended for the mobilized. So he wanted to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The FSB reports that the man recorded the poisoning process on video and sent it to the Ukrainians.”
The FSB report added, "Water was supposed to be sent to those mobilized in the Northern Military District zone, but they did not have time to drink it. The poisoner has already been detained, charges of attempted treason and terrorism have been filed against him. The FSB does not say how exactly he poisoned the water."
Russian law enforcement claimed the man had “radical views” on Russian movements in Ukraine and he was urged to “support” the Ukrainian armed forces, the Daily Star reported.

According to Agenzianova, criminal proceedings have been opened and the man is set to be charged and tried on grounds of high treason and terrorism.
Officials said this could land the man in a grim gulag, which Front Page Detectives previously reported on as a place where prisoners’ hands are crushed and heads forced into poop-filled toilets.
