A member of the illegal armed groups of the "DNR", who was hiding from justice on the peaceful territory of Ukraine, was exposed and detained by the military counterintelligence of the United Forces, the press center of the JFO HQ said.
The law enforcers established that in 2014, the 43-year-old Sloviansk resident, under the influence of pro-Russian propaganda, with her husband voluntarily joined the "militia of Novorossia". Under the leadership of the militants, one of whom had the call-sign "Khmel", she revealed patriotic citizens of Ukraine and brought them to the commandant's office of the "DNR" in Sloviansk and Kramatorsk.
With the beginning of the active operations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the liberation of Ukrainian cities, the militant voluntarily left the "service".
According to the materials of the military counterintelligence, criminal proceedings were opened. On July 13, she was informed of the suspicion of committing a crime under Art. 260 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - "Creation of illegal paramilitary or armed formations not provided by law". Now the detainee cooperates with the investigation.
