In Kolomyia, Ivano-Frankivsk region, a man was punished for telling on Telegram where summonses were distributed. He was accused of obstructing the activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine due to the threat of disruption of mobilization.
This is stated in the verdict of the Kolomyia District Court of Ivano-Frankivsk region.
According to the court, in July 2022, the man created a Telegram channel with information about where summonses are distributed. He was accused of obstructing the activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and helping draft evaders avoid military service.
From 11.07.2022 to 01.02.2023, 9 messages were published on this Telegram channel indicating specific places where military commissars work.
"At the same time, the accused developed a mechanism for obstructing the legitimate activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other paramilitary formations and, despite the fact that this information was disseminated not only by him, but also by other participants of the channel who were not in criminal conspiracy with the accused, all activities of the channel were covered by his criminal intent. The accused clearly knew and realized that the channel systematically posted information that systematically obstructs the specified legitimate activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the court materials say.
The suspect pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with the investigation.
The court found the man guilty under Part 1 of Art. 114-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison, replacing this term with 2 years of probation.
