The Ukrainian law enforcement officers have already detained about 600 collaborators in the six weeks since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, National Police Chief Ihor Klymenko reported on Facebook on April 7.

"Police investigators are probing 123 criminal cases on collaboration activities," he said, adding that 594 people suspected of collaborating with the enemy have already been detained.

"We’re paying special attention to combating looting,” Klymenko said. “Over 1,600 property crimes have already been registered. No theft, robbery or looting is left without our attention. Those who decide to profit from other people's property in such a difficult time will definitely be held accountable before the law."
