In the Donetsk region, the SBI exposed the criminals who were selling weapons and drugs under the guise of military servicemen


The SBI employees in cooperation with the Main Department of National Police of the Donetsk region exposed a group of people who acted as "servicemen" of the SSU and were involved in the trafficking of weapons and drugs in the Donetsk region. The Bureau decisively uncovers all the atrocities, in particular those that can discredit our defenders.

The SBI established that the members of the group, one of whom was a foreigner, used uniforms and a car with the insignia of the Security Service of Ukraine.
At the borderline of the Dnipropetrovsk region, the SBI together with the National Police stopped two cars in which the perpetrators were traveling. Law enforcement officers found and seized in the vehicles a PK machine gun, two RGD-5 grenades, and over 500 calibers of 5.45 and 7.62. They also found a narcotic substance, which was presumably the psychotropic substance alpha-PVP.

Criminal proceedings were initiated under Article 263 of the CC of Ukraine (unlawful handling of weapons, ammunition, or explosives) and Article 309 of the CC of Ukraine (illegal production, making, purchasing, storage, transportation, or sending of narcotics, psychotropic substances or their analogs not for selling purposes).

The sanction of the article provides punishment in the form of imprisonment for up to 7 years.

Procedural guidance is provided by the Pokrovsk District Prosecutor's Office.
