Organizer of terrorist informational network is convicted under the SBU materials
The Lysychanskyi District Court of Luhansk region sentenced the informational network organizer of so-called “LNR National Police” to 4 years of imprisonment under the SBU materials.
The SBU officers established that the resident of Popasna, who served a sentence for wilful murder in the penal colony on the occupied territory, was recruited by militants. He was proposed to create an informational network in exchange for the facilitation of the imprisonment conditions. The prisoner found accomplices “at large” – among the representatives of the crime rings on the Ukraine controlled territory.
The informers collected and sent to the organizer sms-messages with information about placement, displacement, numerical strength and ammunition of the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the ATO area. After he received the information, he immediately reported to his handlers-militants.
The SBU officers detained the organizer of agent network right after his release from prison, when he came to the territory controlled by Ukraine.
The court found the criminal guilty under Part 1 Article 258-3 (creation of a terrorist group or terrorist organization) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
