According to the investigation, Velikoklad organized the transportation of Iranian kamikaze drones to the Ukrainian border: on July 3 of this year, the Russians attacked Sumy with them.

“The official provided planes for the transfer of Russian fighters and weapons from the Middle East and Africa to the war in Ukraine. It was established that the transportation of Iranian drones to the territory of the Russian Federation was carried out on board the Il-76 military transport aircraft from the flight fleet of the Velikoklada airline company,” the message says. .

In addition, he provided aircraft for the transfer from Africa in late 2022 and early 2023 of units of the Russian PMK Wagner, which were then transported to the Bakhmut area for the assault on the Ukrainian city. For this, the leadership of the Wagnerites entered into agreements with the Velikoklada airline company and paid money for the use of aircraft.

“It is documented that the Wagnerites spent 56 million Russian rubles on 8 international flights. To mask contacts with the flight unit of the person involved, representatives of the Russian PMC used controlled commercial structures outside the borders of the Russian Federation,” the SBU said.

Velikoklada was notified of the suspicion under Part 5 of Art. 27 and Part 2 of Art. 437 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (planning, preparation, initiation and waging of an aggressive war).

“Since the perpetrator is on the territory of the Russian Federation, comprehensive measures are underway to bring him to justice for crimes against our state,” the SBU added.

Note: according to Article 62 of the Constitution of Ukraine, a person is considered innocent of committing a crime and cannot be criminally punished until his guilt is proven in a legal manner and established by a court verdict.
