The Security Service of Ukraine has identified more than 4 thousand representatives of enemy groups, traitors and collaborators whom Russian invaders plan to involve in pseudo-referendums in the occupied regions of Ukraine. This was reported by the Security Service of Ukraine, UNN reported.

"As a result of multi-stage operational actions, the Security Service together with the Prosecutor General's Office identified the main organizers and participants in the preparation of fake referendums in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. Currently, more than 4 thousand representatives of hostile groups, traitors and collaborators who are planned to be involved in the organization of illegal plebiscites in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions have been identified," the statement reads.

It is reported that among them are Russian security forces, their henchmen from the local "Ministry of Internal Affairs" formed by the occupiers and the heads of the so-called "territorial election commissions".

"According to the intercepted documents of the aggressor country, it is the units of the Russian Guard and the military police of the Russian Federation that should provide "protection" of pseudo-voting. Collaborators from the occupation administrations and private security structures controlled by the Russian special services were sent to "help" them," the statement reads.

In addition, the SBU collected identification data on all organizers of illegal activities, established their locations and routes, and documented criminal actions.

Thus, in the framework of criminal proceedings initiated by the SBU investigators under:

- Part 2 Art. 28, Part 5 Art. 111-1 (collaboration),

- Part 2 Art. 110 (encroachment on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, comprehensive measures are being taken to bring the perpetrators to justice.
