The SBU detained two adherents of the “Russian world” – pro-Kremlin Internet agitators operating in Kharkov and Ivano-Frankivsk. The attackers publicly justified Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine, glorified the Russian occupiers and praised the former USSR.
According to the intelligence service, to distribute destructive content, both defendants created anonymous accounts on the forbidden social network Odnoklassniki. There they published their own anti-Ukrainian messages and reposted publications or videos of propagandists from the aggressor country.
In particular, in the Carpathian region, an enemy agitator popularized militants of the Russian private military company Wagner and spread fake “news from the front.”
He also tried to discredit the Ukrainian defenders fighting on the front line in the Donetsk region, primarily the defenders of Avdiivka.
According to the investigation, the defendant is a native of the village of Dubenki, a former employee of the penitentiary service. During searches in his house, a mobile phone and computer equipment were discovered, which he used to spread enemy propaganda.
A supporter of Russianism was detained in Kharkov, who praised the Kremlin’s aggressive policy, was “nostalgic” for the former USSR and hoped for the capture of the eastern region of Ukraine.
According to SBU materials, he had previously received a notice of suspicion, and after that he began to hide from the investigation and tried to flee to Russia.
However, Security Service employees found the person involved and detained him. The issue of additional qualification of his criminal actions is being resolved. The defendant was chosen as a preventive measure – detention.
Investigations into both exposed facts are ongoing. The perpetrators face up to 8 years in prison with confiscation of property.
Let us remind you that recently SBU officers detained two enemy henchmen who were “hunting” Patriot and photographing the consequences of “arrivals” in Kyiv and Cherkassy.

I firmly believe that the best way to learn about something is by doing it yourself and that is why I love my job so much. It allows me to be constantly learning about new things and then sharing that knowledge with others.
