The SBU, Ukraine's state security service, notified Russia's FSB agent about being a suspect in the act of subornation of Ukrainian servicemen; this particular "special operation" occurred in 2014, during the occupation of Crimea. Press department of the Office of Prosecutor General reported that on October 21.
The individual whose name remains undisclosed appears to have committed actions aimed at obliteration of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. According to the investigation, in February and March 2014, he was in Simferopol, Crimea; acting in tight coordination with other FSB agents, he developed the plan of occupation and subsequent annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula.
The culprit used a wide range of tactics, such as negotiations, buy-offs, and threats, urging servicemen of Ukraine's Stae Border Guard to stop resisting and to defect in favor of Russia.
The man is charged with waging aggressive war against Ukraine, instigation into state treason, and assisting in the attempt on Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014, invading the Ukrainian peninsula and holding the illegal referendum; based on its trumped-up results, the Russian Parliament decided to approve the "reunification" of Crimea with mainland Russia. Ukraine, in turn, defined February 20, 2014, as the beginning of the occupation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. Western governments and organizations NGOs do not recognize the act of annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula.
