Prosecutors of the Kupyansk District Prosecutor’s Office filed an indictment against a 55-year-old Dvorichna resident on collaboration charges.

Investigators found that last summer, the suspect willingly took the position of “acting head of the finance department” in the pro-Kremlin “Temporary Civil Administration of Kupiansk District of Kharkiv Region” in Kupiansk.

According to the investigation, in his new position, the man developed drafts of the “civilian administration’s” budget, planned the work of the department he headed, monitored the implementation of budget revenue plans for the Kupiansk district, prepared reports, and organized the development of job descriptions for subordinate employees.

After the de-occupation of Kupiansk, the man fled to Kharkiv, where he tried to hide but was detained by law enforcement.

The suspect is currently in custody. The resident of Dvorichna faces a sentence of imprisonment for a term of five to ten years with deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions or engage in certain activities for a term of ten to fifteen years, with or without confiscation of property.

Article 62 of the Constitution of Ukraine provides that a person is presumed innocent of committing a crime and shall not be subjected to criminal punishment until his or her guilt is proved by law and established by a court verdict of guilty.
