SBI officers, in cooperation with the Security Service of Ukraine, served a notice of suspicion to a dog handler of a correctional colony in Hola Prystan, Kherson region.
After the occupation of the city, he did not want to lose his income and voluntarily agreed to work for the occupiers, receiving the position of senior instructor - dog handler of the correctional facility. The collaborator ensured the operation of the dog training centre, trained dogs guarding the territory of the colony and received a salary in rubles from the occupiers.
