A pro-Kremlin collaborator in Mykolaiv Oblast has been sentenced for his involvement as an agent of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation, better known as the GRU, Ukraine’s SBU security service reported on April 8

The statement says that during the investigation irrefutable evidence was gathered proving that the collaborator was responsible for guiding missile strikes by Russia against civilian infrastructure in the oblast.

“The guidance provided by the informant led to missile strikes on two local schools by Russian invasion forces. As a result, both buildings were completely destroyed,” the SBU said.
