The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) is conducting a pre-trial investigation against the Motor Sich enterprise in the case of a possible supply of military-purpose products to Russia that could be used for sabotage in Donbas. The press service of the SBU department reports this at the request of Radio Liberty.

“A pre-trial investigation is being conducted in criminal proceedings on the grounds of crimes stipulated by paragraphs 1 of article 14, article 113 and part 1 of article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, namely the fact of preparation for sabotage. These are actions aimed at the destruction of Motor Sich joint stock company as an object that has important economic and defense significance, as well as the provision by representatives of Motor Sich JSC of assistance to the Russian Federation in carrying out subversive activities against Ukraine by supplying military and dual-use products," the document says.

The SBU did not provide other details, referring to the norms of the Code of Criminal Procedure on non-disclosure of data from operational search activities and preliminary investigations.

On July 19, the SBU stopped the illegal activities of the Motor Sich group of companies, which for two years has been financing the activities of the "Donetsk People's Republic" (DPR) terrorist organization, and announced the suspicion to the director and head of the financial department. Motor Sich is accused of sending payments to the Central Republican Bank of the DPR to Snizhnyansky Machine-Building Plant in the form of so-called "taxes and other obligatory payments" that are unforeseen by current Ukrainian legislation.

Motor Sich has denied allegations by the Security Service of financing the DPR.
