SBU materials help to convict leader of militants’ group
SBU materials helped to sentence leader of so-called "Sverdlovsk Cossack Regiment of LNR” to ten years of imprisonment.
SBU operatives established that a resident of Berdiansk joined the illegal armed formation of so-called LNR in April 2014. Being a member of one of armed formations, he took an active part in the hostilities against the ATO forces.
Afterwards, the offender moved to the so-called "Sverdlovsk Cossack Regiment of LNR", where he continued illegal activity and was soon appointed the leader of the group.
Berdiansk Municipal Court of Zaporizzhya region found militant guilty in absentia of committing a crime stipulated by Art. 258-3 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Currently the criminal is on the ‘wanted’ list. The sentence would start from the day of his arrest.
The pretrial investigation was carried out by the investigators of the SBU Office in Zaporizzhya region under the procedural supervision of the regional Prosecutor’s Office.
