The Halytskyi District Court of Lviv has sentenced a collaborator of the Russian occupation administration in occupied Crimea to 12 years in prison, Ukraine’s SBU security service reported on Nov. 7.

The offender, a Ukrainian citizen, was detained in April 2022, when she was in government-controlled territory, attempting to cross into the EU, on her way to Russia, by way of Belarus.

Having sided with Russian occupation “authorities” in Crimea, she received a position in the so-called “Ministry of Economic Development.”

“Holding a senior position in the ‘Ministry of Economic Development’ of the so-called ‘government’ of the occupied Crimea in 2014-2021, the ‘official’ participated in the preparation of management decisions aimed at subordinating the economy of the peninsula to the aggressor state,” SBU’s message said.

The court found the woman guilty of high treason, under Section 1 of Art. 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
