The Security Service and the National Police detained two more collaborators who tried to avoid justice after cooperating with the Russian troops in the Kherson region.
In order to “hide” from the SBU, one of the persons involved even enlisted in the ranks of the National Guard.
However, the employees of the Ukrainian special service timely exposed the perpetrators, established their location and detained them.
As per the probe, two(2) former employees of the furniture factory in the Kherson turned out to be collaborators.
During the city’s occupation, they voluntarily went to work in the jail that has been created by the Russian troops.
It is to be noted that there they were appointed as the “junior inspectors” of the “Northern Correctional Colony No. 90” captured at that time.
In this institution, the Rashists kept the local residents kidnapped en masses, mainly the members of the resistance movement across the region.
The task of both the Russian collaborators was on guarding the jail cells where the victims were kept.
Following the liberation of Kherson, the perpetrators have left for a nearby village, where they have tried to hide from the justice.
But, later one of the persons who were part of this moved to live with his parents in the city of Yuzhnoukrain, Mykolaiv Oblast, and from there was mobilized to one of the military units of the National Guard of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, during the search operation of the places of residence of the detainees, “certificates” of the occupation authority of Russia and financial “information” on the receipt of “salary” in Russian rubles were discovered.
Right now, both persons that were part of this have been notified of suspicion under Part 7 of Article 111-1 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code (collaborative activity). The court chose a preventive measure for them in the form of detention. Perpetrators face up to 15 years in prison.
Complex measures were carried out by SBU employees in the Kherson region together with the National Police under the procedural guidance of the regional prosecutor’s office.
