Ukraine’s SBU Security Service has identified a “Deputy Prosecutor General” who works for Russian proxy authorities in the non-government-controlled areas of the Donbas, the SBU said a statement on Feb. 16.

Their investigation concluded that the suspect facilitated illegal arrests and detentions of Ukrainian citizens.

The woman in question was inventing fictitious charges to illegally detain pro-Ukrainian individuals, according to the SBU’s report. She allegedly joined the Russian proxy authorities in Luhansk in 2014, and was eventually promoted to become a “Deputy Prosecutor General.”
