May 13, 2023

The SBI continues to expose and prosecute traitors and collaborators who cooperated with the invaders during the large-scale aggression of the Russian Federation.


SBI officers have completed a pre-trial investigation against a forestry worker who provided the occupiers with wood. The indictment has been sent to court, the State Bureau of Investigation reports.

After the occupiers seized the village of Borova in the Izyum district, a senior forester of the Borovske Forestry voluntarily cooperated with the enemy. He took a position in the so-called "Borovske forestry" created by the invaders.

In his new "position", the defendant performed organizational and administrative functions, provided the occupiers with logistics, and monitored fire safety. After the village was liberated, the collaborator was detained.

The senior forester is accused of voluntarily holding a position in illegal authorities in the temporarily occupied territories (Part 5 of Article 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine). The sanction of the article provides for punishment in the form of imprisonment for up to 10 years.

SBI officers also served a notice of suspicion in absentia to a traitor who went to work in a prison created by the occupiers. Immediately after the beginning of the Russian full-scale invasion, he did not report to his place of service in Vovchansk, Kharkiv region, and remained to wait for the enemy at his place of residence in the village of Dvorichna.

When the occupiers entered the village, the traitor voluntarily went to work for them and was appointed "acting police officer" in the occupation prison that the Russians had set up in Dvorichna. On the instructions of the occupiers, he received and guarded detained citizens and ensured their convoy.

The defendant fled with the occupiers to Russia after the liberation of the Kharkiv region. He is suspected of collaboration and desertion (Part 7 of Art. 111-1, Part 4 of Art. 408 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine). The sanction of the articles provides for a sentence of imprisonment for up to 15 years. Two more former law enforcement officers from the Luhansk region were served suspicion notices of collaboration.

It has been established that in the summer of 2022, after the seizure of the town, the traitors immediately received an offer to take positions in the Belokurakivka local police. In addition to the functions of "protecting order," the collaborators participated in pro-Russian propaganda. They periodically appeared in informational videos on the website of the so-called "Ministry of Internal Affairs" of Luhansk terrorists with propaganda slogans and distorted information about the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The criminals are suspected of collaboration - voluntary occupation of positions in illegal law enforcement agencies established in the temporarily occupied territory - Part 7 of Article 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The sanction of the article provides for imprisonment for up to 15 years with confiscation of property.
