During the battles with units of the Ukrainian army, the grenade launcher was taken prisoner.
The police have reported suspicions high treason a native of the Odessa region, who fought on the side of the “DPR” for 8 years.
This was reported to UNIAN in the press service of the Odessa Regional Prosecutor’s Office.
It was found that in May 2014, the man joined the terrorist organization “DPR” and for almost 8 years offered armed resistance to Ukrainian law enforcement officers and military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine involved in the anti-terrorist operation.
Later, from February 24 of this year, the suspect, being a grenade launcher in the combat unit of the 11th separate motorized rifle regiment of the “DPR”, took part in hostilities against the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donetsk region.
“In particular, he opposed the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the settlements of Prokhorovka, Kamenskoye, Solnechnoye, Khlebodarovka, Donetsk, Volnoye, Near, Bugaz, Novotroitskoye, Yelenovka and Berezove of the Donetsk region. At the same time, he participated in the capture and occupation of these settlements. As a result of military clashes he was taken prisoner with units of the Ukrainian army,” the message says.
The Office of the SBU in the Odessa region, which is investigating, added that in March of this year, Ukrainian troops delivered a powerful blow to the positions of the invaders and captured many militants, including the said native of the Odessa region.
Now the court has chosen a measure of restraint for him – detention.
It is noted that under the procedural leadership of the Odessa Regional Prosecutor’s Office, he was informed of suspicion of high treason (part 1 of article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
Earlier, SBU investigators informed the attacker in absentia about the suspicion under Part 1 of Art. 258-3 (creation of a terrorist group or terrorist organization) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Now the indictment on the fact of participation in a terrorist organization is in court.
As UNIAN previously reported, SBU exposed 6 more collaborators. It is proved that all of them voluntarily agreed to cooperate with the enemy and help the Russian Federation in establishing and supporting the occupation regimes in the temporarily occupied territories.
