Ex-rector of Kyiv university sentenced to 15 years for collaboration with occupiers
A court has sentenced a former vice-rector of a medical university in Kyiv to 15 years in prison. He was detained while trying to pass information to the enemy.
The Security Service of Ukraine reported this.
It is noted that in 2020, after his dismissal, the collaborator moved to temporarily occupied Crimea, where the FSB recruited him.
A month before the full-scale invasion, he returned to Kyiv to perform enemy tasks.
It was established that the traitor was gathering information for the aggressor about AFU servicemen who were undergoing inpatient treatment in military hospitals and hospitals in Kyiv Region.
Additionally, the agent established contacts with Ukrainian and foreign scientists for their subsequent recruitment into the FSB agency, the SBU has said.
Under the pretext of preparing a dissertation, he tried to involve former colleagues and graduates of the university in his activities.
For his activities, the traitor wanted to be appointed by the Russian authorities as "deputy health minister" of the Crimean occupation administration.
But instead, he received a 15-year sentence under Part 2 of Article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (state treason committed under martial law).
