Ukraine Will Try Blogger And Suspected Russian Agent For Treason
7 years
Are Crimean Teachers Destroying Ukrainian Books?
Large Military Column Reportedly Headed North In Lugansk Region
The Ukrainian Security Services (SBU) has announced that it will try a blogger and suspected Russian agent for treason:

Here is the complete announcement from the SBU's website:

The SSU Counterintelligence Office jointly with border guards detained citizen of Ukraine “M”, native of Luhansk, YOB 1990, who was trying to flee to the temporary occupied Crimea to receive the next task from representatives of the RF special services.

It was established that Mr. “M” was recruited by Russian FSB back in March of the current year while he was staying in the peninsula. Having returned to Ukraine the offender spread through the social media anti-Ukrainian materials and misleading information to discredit Ukrainian authorities by order of his FSB supervisor. Aside from that, he has set up an internet community to promote the creation of the so called Novorossiia and appeal to support the terrorist activity in the east of Ukraine.

The offender was detained at the checkpoint in a bus, which was heading from Luhansk to Yalta. According to him, he was traveling there to meet with his supervisor to get new missions aimed to destabilize situation in Ukraine.
The investigation under Part 1 Article 11 (treason) is under way.

The question, of course, is whether Ukraine has evidence to tie this "Mr. 'M'" to the Russian government, or whether Kiev is about to prosecute someone for voicing support for "Novorossiya" as, no doubt, Kiev's critics will claim.
