A fire spotter working for the enemy in Luhansk Oblast, who was using her daughter to leak positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to the Russian special services, will spend 12 years behind bars, the regional prosecutor’s office reported on Facebook on Nov. 25.

"At the public prosecution of the Lysychansk District Prosecutor's Office of Luhansk Oblast, a woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison for adjusting enemy fire onto the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the Facebook update reads.

"Prosecutors provided the court with indisputable evidence based on the results of examinations and materials collected by the investigation," the statement said.

It is documented that the 52-year-old local resident for ideological reasons helped the enemy in the rapid capture of settlements on the Popasna axis.

According to the Security Service, she collected information on the location and movement of Ukrainian army units, weapons, and military equipment.

"She passed the intelligence to her daughter, who lived in Moscow and worked for the Russian Federal Security Service from the beginning of the full-scale invasion," the prosecutor's office said.

After exposing the supporter of Russia, relevant audio and text messages, as well as photos were found on her mobile phone.

According to the trial, the Vasylkivskyi District Court of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast found the woman guilty of assisting the occupation forces in conducting hostilities against the Armed Forces of Ukraine (Part 2 of Art. 28, Part 7 of Art. 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine) and sentenced her to a real punishment.
