A collaborator who agreed to work for the occupiers who destroyed his house will be tried in Ukraine. The master gas worker in Lyman headed the Donbasgaz DNR branch created by the occupiers.
He took up his "position" in June 2022, during his time working for the occupiers, the traitor earned 36 thousand Russian rubles, and now he will be brought to justice. This was reported by the Donetsk Regional Prosecutor's Office.
They said that an indictment against a Ukrainian citizen on the fact of collaboration was sent to the Industrial District Court of Dnipro. He is charged with crimes under Part 5 of Article 27, Part 4 of Article 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
"The pre-trial investigation established that in June 2022, the master gas worker agreed to cooperate with the occupiers in the Yenakiyevo Gas Supply and Gasification Department of the state concern Donbasgaz in Krasny Liman, Donetsk People's Republic. Krasny Liman of the DPR". After the previous "head" fled to the now-occupied Yenakiyevo, the man was promoted to "acting head of the section". For all the time he worked for the Russians, who destroyed his home during the attack, the foreman managed to earn 36 thousand rubles," the statement said.
In his "position", the traitor supervised the restoration of gas pipeline networks damaged during the fighting in order to further collect gas payments from local residents in favour of the occupiers. The collaborator reported on every step he took to the Kremlin-appointed representatives of the occupation "authorities".
"After his "appointment", he immediately began organising heating of the seized buildings where the Russian occupation groups were "quartered". At the same time, he completely left the homes of local residents without heating," the SBU added.
Subsequently, Lyman was released by the Ukrainian military. The traitor stayed in his parents' house, deciding that he would not face responsibility for collaborating with the occupiers. Interestingly, the traitor's wife and children fled to occupied Yenakiyevo.

Earlier it became known that the SBU detained an informant in Sumy region who was "leaking" information to the occupiers about the deployment of the Ukrainian Defence Forces in the region. The invaders needed the data for air strikes on the positions of Ukrainian soldiers, as well as for preparing a breakthrough of the state border in Sumy region by enemy sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
