Vinnytsia region: SBU materials help to convict terrorists’ informer
SBU materials helped Vinnytsia City Court to convict another member of the “DNR” terrorist organisation informative network.
The SBU operatives found that the resident of Toretsk collected and transfered to the militants data about the deployment sites, number and movement routes of Ukrainian forces and means and other military units engaged in the anti-terrorist operation.
The informer transfered the received data to his supervisor through his close relative who is the member of one of the illegal terrorist formations. Subsequently these materials were used by the militants for sabotage actions and shelling of the Ukrainian servicemen and military sites.
In December 2016, the SBU officers detained terrorists’ collaborator at his workplace in Toretsk. During the sanctioned investigative actions the officers seized mobile devices used for communication.
During a pre-trial investigation the suspect pleaded guilty in the crime stipulated by Part 1 Article 258-3 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The court imposed a punishment in the form of four years of imprisonment.
The verdict came into force.
