Collaborator guided Russian missile strike that killed 44 people in Kharkiv gets life sentence
On November 13, the Kyiv District Court of Kharkiv found guilty a 38-year-old man who, on March 1, 2022, assisted Russia in launching a missile at the building of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration.
The Prosecutor General's Office press service reports the information.
The man was sentenced to life imprisonment with confiscation of property.
Prosecutors proved in court that from February to April 2022, the suspect collected information about the Armed Forces of Ukraine and passed on information about the infrastructure to the Russian invaders.
It is known that the Kharkiv resident transmitted intelligence through a social network banned in Ukraine to two women working for Russian special services. On February 28, 2022, the man sent the coordinates of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration to a curator in Moscow. According to the head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, 44 people died as a result of the attack, and the building was almost completely destroyed.
The suspect also posted online posts justifying Russian aggression.
Last week, the Security Service of Ukraine served a notice of suspicion to a Kharkiv resident who directed a Russian Iskander at a residential area in Kharkiv on October 6.
