The SBU served a notice of suspicion to Sergei Skuratov, Director General of Ural Airlines, who provided civilian aircraft to transfer Russian troops to Ukraine for combat operations.

This was reported by the press service of the SBU.

According to the investigation, Skuratov helped the Russian Defense Ministry to transfer occupation groups in the direction of the Ukrainian border. To do this, he provided 6 civil aircraft, which then transported the mobilized, as well as their weapons and ammunition.

Investigators established that since the beginning of October last year, with the assistance of Skuratov, Russia has made 11 military flights to Platov airport in the Rostov region. And from there, the occupation units transferred resources to Ukraine to participate in hostilities on the eastern and southern fronts.

"Based on the collected evidence, investigators of the Security Service informed Skuratov of suspicion under Part 5 of Art. 27, part 2 of art. 437 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (planning, preparation, initiation and conduct of aggressive war). The attacker faces up to 15 years in prison. Comprehensive measures are underway to bring him to justice for crimes against our state," the statement reads.

As reported, the SBU exposed a company in Volyn that supplied components for submarines to the Russian Federation.
