The Security Service of Ukraine has gathered evidence against a former member of parliament from the banned “Communist Party of Ukraine”. On the eve of russia’s full-scale invasion, he was one of the organizers of an appeal by the so-called International Union of Soviet Officers to the president of the aggressor country. The Security Service of Ukraine reports. 

In this “appeal,” the signatories asked the Kremlin leader to recognize the “sovereignty” of the temporarily occupied districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

In addition, from 2017-2019, the former MP actively participated in mass anti-Ukrainian events in moscow and campaigned for the “accession” of the captured part of eastern Ukraine to russia.  He also advocated the official stationing of russian troops on the territory of our country.

After February 24, 2022, the defendant anticipated the imminent occupation of Kyiv and incited his friends to help the russian occupiers in the event of the capture of the capital region.

The perpetrator was charged under Part 1 Art—110 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (violation of territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine).

The collaborator faces a lengthy prison sentence with confiscation of property.
