Andriy Shevchyk, a former member of the Enerhodar city council, is suspected of helping to steal goods totaling $51 million after defecting to Russia, the SBU Security Service of Ukraine announced on Aug. 30.

While working for the invaders, he reportedly issued criminal orders that "permitted" them to steal the assets of local businesses.

In particular, the collaborator helped Russia appropriate UAH 1.89 billion ($51 million) worth of property from agricultural concerns.

In addition, thanks to Shevchyk's illegal actions, almost 140,000 tons of grain stolen from Ukrainian farmers was taken to Russia.
