KHARKIV OBLAST, UKRAINE, Apr 22 — The press service of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office reported about issuing a notice of suspicion in absentia to a 52-year-old woman from Kupiansk-Vuzlovyi, Kharkiv region for collaboration with representatives of the Russian Federation.

According to law enforcement, during the Russian occupation of Kupiansk-Vuzlovyi, a resident voluntarily agreed to work with representatives of the Russian Federation. In August 2022, the woman took up the position of “chief specialist of the customer service department of the Pension Fund of the Kupiansk district”.

“The collaborator was engaged in accepting applications for so-called “material assistance” from the occupation administration, and ensuring the production of temporary certificates used by residents to receive this assistance,” the Prosecutor’s Office reported.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the woman performed her duties until the Ukrainian military deoccupied the Kupiansk district. She currently lives on the temporarily occupied territory. Law enforcement officials are deciding whether to put her on the wanted list.
