The SBI announced a bosun he suspicion who defected to the enemy and today is at war against Ukraine on the frigate "Admiral Essen"

05/08/2022

the SBI employees notified the former senior bosun of the large disruptive ship "Slavutich" about the suspicion of high treason. In 2014, after the occupants occupied his military unit in Sevastopol, the sailor volunteered to join the enemy and pledged allegiance to the aggressor.

Now the enemy is serving on the missile frigate "Admiral Essen" of the 30th division of the surface ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the armed forces of the Russian Federation.

SBI investigators collected sufficient evidence and informed the enemy in absentia that he was suspected of treason against the state (part 1, article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

He faces punishment in the form of imprisonment for up to 15 years.

The procedural guidance is provided by the Odessa Specialized Prosecutor's Office for Military and Defense of the South Region

It should be reminded, that earlier the SBI had already notified the captain of the russian cruiser "Admiral Makarov" and the commander of the missile boat "Vyshny Volochek" of suspicion. Officers also betrayed Ukraine in 2014.

The State Bureau of Investigation continues to carry out systematic work to identify the perpetrators, including those who defected to the enemy side back in 2014.

All traitors and deserters will be brought to justice.
