The SBU detained a collaborator from the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs in Kherson, who was trying to hide in the temporarily occupied part of the region. This was reported by the press service of the SBU.
It is reported that a former official of the disbanded state automobile inspectorate went to cooperate with the enemy.
“After the capture of the city, he voluntarily agreed to cooperate with the enemy and received a position in the local occupation police. So he became a member of the “main department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kherson region” created by the aggressor. In the occupational body, he was appointed “inspector of the patrol service battalion”. After that, he “served” with firearms and the corresponding “certificate” of the Russian type,” the message says.
In this position, the collaborator, together with the invaders, carried out “raids” throughout the city to identify members of the resistance movement.
“During such raids, the Rashists illegally detained citizens, robbed their houses and took the victims to the torture chamber. After the liberation of Kherson, the collaborator tried to hide on the left bank of the Dnieper city in order to avoid justice. But the SBU officers promptly exposed the attacker and detained him, preventing him from escaping to temporarily occupied part of the region,” the SBU reported.
The collaborator was notified of suspicion of voluntary work in positions in illegal law enforcement agencies established in the temporarily occupied territory, and was taken into custody. He faces up to 15 years in prison.
