'LPR deputy' sentenced to eight years in prison

A "deputy" of the so-called "LPR People's Council" has been sentenced to eight years of imprisonment in Luhansk region, according to a statement released by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).

"Law enforcers established that a resident of Khrustalny joined the ranks of illegal armed units in 2014. The offender actively supported Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine, facilitated the establishment of an occupation administration in ORLO [certain areas of Luhansk region], and voted for the adoption of a number of separatist 'laws' of the pseudo-republic. Security Service officers involved in the Joint Forces Operation detained him when he attempted to cross the contact line in order to receive a pension on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities," the report says.

Lysychansk City Court found the culprit guilty of committing crimes under Part 1, Article 109, Part 2, Article 110 and Part 1, Article 258-3 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

The verdict has come into force.
