SBU detains defector on the administrative border with Crimea
SBU officers detained a defector at Kalanchak checkpoint (administrative border with the Crimea).
The law enforcers established that in 2014 the former sublieutenant of the Naval Forces of Ukraine failed to return to the mainland, as was requested by the instructions of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The servicewoman was put on the wanted list by the Military Prosecutor's Office.
The SBU operatives received information that the woman planed to leave the Crimea to reissue the documents and detained her on crossing of the administrative border.
The criminal proceeding was initiated under Part 1 of Article 358 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The issue of choosing the measure of restraint to the offender is being decided.
Investigative actions are under way.
