Details: It is reported that the man admitted his guilt in full, declared his remorse and helped to solve the crime.

The verdict of the Primorskyi District Court of Odesa states that the accused provided Russian troops with information about tanks, military trucks and multiple rocket launchers.

His "handler", a soldier from the so-called "Luhansk People's Republic" named Koval, was interested in the location of checkpoints in the Odessa region, in particular in Zatoka.

It is in this area that the bridge across Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi estuary is located, on which Russian troops have already launched seven missile strikes.

Quote: "Victor K., acting intentionally, received information about the location of the checkpoint of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Ukraine’s Territorial Defence Forces in Odesa and Biliaivka districts including the number of personnel, which he passed on to Koval."

At the request of his "handler", the informer also looked for residents of Odesa Oblast who supported Russia's actions and also offered them the chance to cooperate with terrorist organisations.

He transmitted information about terrorists via Telegram messenger by voice message.

The man was also found guilty of acquiring and illegally possessing Smooth Bore Firearms and hexogen explosives.

He was detained on 17 March and brought to court on 4 May.
