The Security Service of Ukraine exposed the illegal financing mechanism of the occupation administration of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk region. This was reported by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).
The law enforcers found that the organizers were illegally sending the products of the Ukrainian enterprise seized by the militants to the aggressor country.
It is noted that for several years PJSC Stakhanov Railway Car Building Works has been supplying products, in particular, to enterprises of the Russian Federation. It was established that the components manufactured by the plant were exported through an uncontrolled section of the border of our state. The plant paid part of the proceeds in the form of "taxes" to the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic administration.
As we reported earlier, counterintelligence officers of Ukraine’s Security Service detained the commander of one of the sabotage groups from the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic in Odesa region.
According to the investigation, a native of Luhansk region in 2014 took part in the seizure of the SBU in Luhansk region and provided its "protection."
Subsequently, he continued his terrorist activities and took part in hostilities against anti-terrorist operation forces as commander of the reconnaissance and sabotage group.
The malefactor was detained upon arrival in the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities.
