Detectives from Ukraine’s SBU security service exposed a so-called “judge” serving the Russian occupation authorities in Crimea at the Yevpatoriya City Court, “who signed illegal decisions on forced evictions of local residents to remote regions of Russia, including Siberia,” the SBU reported on Facebook on Nov. 5.

The collaborator notably imposed “court sentences” for allegedly "violating" the current “laws” of the occupying power. Thus, the “judge” of the occupying force grossly violated Ukrainian legislation and international humanitarian law.

Based on the collected evidence, SBU investigators charged the suspect under Part 1 of Art. 438 (violation of the laws and customs of war) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, which is punishable by imprisonment for a term of 8 to 12 years.
