A former police officer of Kherson Oblast who betrayed patriotic Ukrainians to the invaders has been served with a notice of suspicion of treason in absentia, Kherson Regional Prosecutor's Office wrote on Telegram on Feb. 18.
The suspect is charged with high treason committed during martial law, which, if he is found guilty could be penalized by imprisonment for 15 years or life imprisonment with confiscation of property.
The investigators revealed that the former police officer willingly agreed to cooperate with the illegal Kremlin-imposed authorities in the Russian-occupied part of Ukraine’s Kherson Obast.
He served in the illegally created body "Oleshky District Police Department" in Kherson Oblast and was appointed a senior inspector of the district inspectors' department.
According to the State Bureau of Investigation, the defendant "due to his activity became an important link in the occupier's punitive machine".
The traitor compiled and handed over to the enemy a list of patriotic citizens who were then detained and imprisoned in order to force the citizens of Kherson to obey the invaders, and to prevent resistance.
