According to the SBU, two local residents of Kharkiv region received prison sentences for collaborating with the invading Russian army: they helped to take away food from people

The SBU press center reports.

It is noted that one of the convicts is a resident of the village of Tsyrkuny. He will spend 10 and a half years behind bars. According to the investigation, after the capture of the settlement, he helped the occupiers navigate the area and rob the homes of local residents. The man broke into the homes of Ukrainians, where they took food reserves, cars and generators.

"During such raids, the Russians even took food from children and the elderly, and in case of refusal or resistance, they threatened to imprison them in a torture chamber and kill them," the statement said.

Based on the SBU materials, the court found him guilty under Part 1 of Article 111-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (aiding the aggressor state).

Another convicted person is a resident of Kupyansk district who provided the FSB with intelligence on the deployment and movement of the Defense Forces in the community. The Russian special service remotely engaged the woman in cooperation after the start of the full-scale invasion.

Based on the evidence collected, the court found the offender guilty under Part 2 of Article 114-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (unauthorized dissemination of information on the movement, relocation or deployment of the Armed Forces committed under martial law).

  • Earlier this month, it was reported that a doctor from Mariupol, who handed over 7 wounded Ukrainian soldiers to the Russian invaders during the battle for the city, was sentenced to life in prison.
