The municipal court of Sudak (occupied Crimea) recognized Hennadiy Lymeshko 'guilty' of illegal purchase and storage of explosives. 

According to Krym.Realii outlet, the Ukrainian pleaded guilty. He got eight years in prison.

The court took into account the fact that Lymeshko has a little daughter; however, the jury also recognized that there was a political motive in this crime, which is 'hatred and enmity due to Crimea's joining Russia'. 

The Ukrainian serves time since May 10, 2018.  

In August 2017, Russia's FSB reported that the workers detained a man whom they called 'the SBU agent (SBU, - Ukraine's State Security Service, - 112 International). They charged him in preparing acts of sabotage on the peninsula.

Hennadiy Lymeshko served with Ukraine's Armed Forces; in May 2017, he was sacked due to incompetency.
