The security service gathered evidence on the collaborator of Roman Khytushchenko, an associate of Serhiy Aksyonov and the "first deputy minister of economic development" in the occupying "government of

Crimea

". 

This was reported by the SBU press service. 

Collaborator Khytushchenko fulfills the Kremlin's tasks regarding the organization of the industrial production of combat drones for the Russian troops.

According to the investigation, in June 2023 Khytushchenko joined the "working group" that created a technological base for the production of drones in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol. First of all, we are talking about serial design and production of attack and reconnaissance UAVs.

In case of a successful test of combat drones, they are sent to the advanced positions of the occupying groups on the southern front.

For the smoothness of this production, the collaborator personally reports to the local Gauleiter Aksyonov and "reports" to Moscow.

As the investigation established, a resident of Crimea Khytushchenko was one of the first to support the seizure of the Ukrainian peninsula.

For such "loyalty", the Russian invaders included him in the local occupation administration of the Russian Federation, where he was initially appointed "deputy minister of economic development", and in November 2023 - "first deputy".

Since then, the traitor has been taking care of the issues of "reformatting" the peninsula's economy to meet the needs of the military-industrial complex and occupation groups of the Russian Federation.

In addition, he is a frequent guest on the broadcasts of Russian TV channels, where he actively supports the Kremlin regime.

On the basis of the collected evidence, the investigators of the Security Service informed Khytushchenko in absentia about the suspicion under Part 5 of Art. 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (collaborative activity).

Since the perpetrator is in the temporarily occupied territory, comprehensive measures are being taken to bring him to justice for crimes against our state.

We will remind you that

a Russian informant was detained in Kirovohrad Oblast, who in his own garage set up a "surveillance point" for the echelons of the Armed Forces moving in the direction of the Eastern Front.
