According to the SBU, the lawmaker of the village council, who is also the head of the local public formation, popularized on its pages in social networks, including those banned in our country, the separatist organizations ‘Luhansk People Republic and the Donetsk People Republic.’
He also disseminated false information that discredits Ukrainian military units and law enforcement agencies, in particular, participants in the operation of the Joint Forces.
"For conducting illegal activities, the agitator used materials from propaganda sites of Russia and illegal armed groups," the SBU said in a statement.

In turn, law enforcement authorities conducted searches at the place of residence of the defendant, where they found computer equipment with information confirming the illegal activity. The seized materials and equipment were sent for examination.
