SBU operatives in Dnipro have exposed an anti-Ukrainian campaign run by a Russia supporter who justified the armed aggression against Ukraine and the enemy’s occupation of Ukrainian territories.
This was reported by the SBU press service.
Now the man faces restriction of freedom for up to eight years.
“An unemployed resident of Dnipro was exposed, who turned out to be a parishioner of the UOC MP. He has been providing services to church members in the manufacture of religious paraphernalia.
Among his close circle of friends and parishioners, the man actively promoted pro-Russian narratives and campaigned to support the so-called “special military operation” in Ukraine.
The investigation established that the agitator had visited the annexed Crimea before the start of the war, where he accumulated narratives of anti-Ukrainian propaganda.
In addition, he repeatedly took part in Russia-designed “immortal regiment” marches.
After the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, he intensified his presence in pro-Russian communities in the banned social network Vkontakte.
Posts published on his personal page, as well as comments, were deemed destructive,” the SBU said.
In addition, the enemy supporter approved of the actions of Russia’s military and political leadership and called for altering the Ukrainian borders.
