The killing of Serhiy Moskalenko, who set up torture chambers in Kherson Oblast, is a just consequence, and something that awaits all collaborators and traitors, Ukrainian Defense Intelligence representative Andriy Yusov, said on national television on March 21.

"Their fate is really straightforward, clear, and speaks volumes for everyone – there was a traitor and he died," Yusov said.

“Actually, this is what awaits all traitors, all collaborators, all those who betrayed their people, their state and participated in crimes against their own citizens and their own country.”

Earlier, Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence reported the killing Moskalenko, who was said to have set up Russian torture chambers in Kherson Oblast. He was killed in the temporarily occupied territory in a car bombing.

Moskalenko, 44, was a resident of Nova Kakhovka and the owner of a local security company. During the occupation, he cooperated with the Russians and was promoted to the position of the so-called "head" of the pre-trial detention center, where Ukrainian prisoners were subjected to inhuman torture.

On March 13, in the temporarily occupied Nova Kakhovka, guerrillas blew up the deputy head of the so-called "Nova Kakhovka military administration" in his car.

The next day, Russian media also reported an attempt on the life of another collaborator, Vitaliy Hur.
