The sanction of the article provides for up to 15 years in prison.
According to the investigation, Shufrych worked closely with and fulfilled the tasks of former Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Volodymyr Sivkovych, an agent of Russia’s FSB, whose task was to coordinate Russian agents in Ukraine.
