Organizer of the financing mechanism of “DNR” terrorist organization militants is served notice of suspicion - the SBU
Employees of the Security Service of Ukraine involved in the operation of the Joint Forces under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor's Office of the Donetsk region exposed an organized group on financing the “DNR” terrorist organization.
Special service operatives have documented that a group of people on both sides of the contact line, through a controlled network of gas stations in the temporarily occupied territory, provided financial and logistical support to the activities of illegal armed units of the so-called "DPR".
Employees of the Security Service of Ukraine established that the attackers carried out a double registration of controlled enterprises for the smooth operation of the gas stations: in the state bodies of Ukraine and in the temporarily occupied territory. They regularly paid taxes to the so-called "DPR" fiscal agencies. For this purpose, they opened accounts in the "Central Republican Bank of the DPR".
Participants in the group also contributed to the activity of the power and administrative units: the "MVD", "MGB", “prosecutor’s office" and the occupation administrations, in particular, provided uninterrupted supply of gasoline and diesel fuel. In addition, they stored fuel and lubricants on a FOC basis as a "mobilization reserve" of the so-called “DNR 1 Army Corps".
At present, investigators of the SBU served notice of suspicion to the organizer of an illegal scheme of committing a crime under Art. 258-3 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The pre-trial investigation is ongoing.
