The Security Service of Ukraine has gathered evidence against the traitor Roman Besedin, who is the head of the occupying “DNR media holding.” He positions himself as one of the Kremlin’s key mouthpieces in temporarily occupied Donetsk and publicly calls for the physical destruction of the entire Ukrainian people.
The details about the above mentioned has been shared by the Security Service of Ukraine via their official social media handle.
It was added that, “back in 2018, Besedin voluntarily headed the enemy “media holding”, which is registered in Russia and unites all printed publications of the captured part of Donetsk region.”
According to the available data, “the traitor is part of the inner circle of the terrorist Pushylin, who personally contributed to his appointment to the ranks of the pro-Kremlin propaganda body.”
Following the start of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, the figure was considered as one of the first to launch a wide-ranging agitation campaign in support of the joining of the occupied Donbass to the Russian Federation.
The data released by the SBU, added that, “To do this, he instructed subordinate propagandists to actively cover the Russian “passportization” of local residents and make fake publications about the pseudo-referendum of 2022. In addition, Besedin used controlled publications to spread calls to participate in the illegal elections of the Russian Federation in September of this year. On the same resources, he campaigned for puppet “candidates” of the Kremlin and “informed” about the falsified results of the fake plebiscite.”
Based on the collected evidence, the investigators of the Security Service informed Besedin of the suspicion under seven articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine:
▪ Part 3 of Art. 109 (actions aimed at the violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order or at the seizure of state power);
▪ Part 2 of Art. 110 (encroachment on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine);
▪ Part 1 of Art. 111 (treason);
▪ Part 1 and Part 5 of Art. 111-1 (collaborative activity);
▪ Part 1 of Art. 111-2;
▪ Part 1 of Art. 258-3 (participation in a terrorist group or terrorist organization);
▪ Part 3 of Art. 436-2 (justification, recognition as legitimate, denial of armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, glorification of its participants).
The investigation was conducted under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
