The security service detained another suspect of collaborationism during stabilization measures in the liberated territories of the Kharkiv region. The perpetrator turned out to be the owner of a farm from the Kupyan district, who was engaged in the cultivation and sale of wholesale batches of grain and oil crops.
This was reported by the spokesman of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region Vladislav Abdula.
During the occupation of the region, she began to cooperate with the Russian invaders and voluntarily “registered” her own business in the local occupation administration of the Russian Federation.
According to the investigation, in July-August last year, more than 2,000 tons of crops were collected on her farm for a total amount of about 13 million hryvnias.
Later, the farmer took the entire batch of grain to the Belgorod region and sold it to Russian agricultural holdings.
At the same time, she transferred part of the received “profit” to the budget of the aggressor country in the form of “taxes”.
After the release of the district, the perpetrator tried to “lie down” and thus avoid justice. However, SBU officers located her and detained her.
During the search of the detainee’s place of residence, documents confirming her cooperation with the occupiers were seized.
On the basis of the collected evidence, the suspect was notified of suspicion under Part 4 of Art. 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (collaborative activity).
Currently, she has been remanded in custody. An investigation is ongoing to establish all the circumstances of the crime.
Complex measures were carried out by SBU employees in the Kharkiv region together with the National Police under the procedural guidance of the Kupyan district prosecutor’s office.
