A resident of Khrustalnyi town (formerly Krasnyi Luch located in the temporarily occupied Luhansk region), a member of the so-called "people's council of the Luhansk People's Republic," who was detained by operatives of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) while trying to cross the demarcation line to receive pension in the government-controlled territory was sentenced to eight years in prison.

"The law enforcers found that a resident of Khrustalnyi joined the ranks of illegal armed formations in 2014. He actively supported Russian armed aggression against Ukraine, helped establish the occupation administration in the so-called "LPR", voted for the adoption of a number of separatist "laws" of the fake republic," Censor.NET reports citing the statement by the SBU press center.

The SBU officers taking part in the Joint forces operation (JFO) detained the "political figure" while trying to cross the demarcation line to fetch a pension payment on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government.

The Lysychansk city court found the person guilty of committing crimes under part 1 of article 109 (actions designed to change or overthrow the constitutional order by force or to seize state power), part 2 of article 110 (encroachment on the territorial integrity of Ukraine) and part 1 of article 258-3 (creation of a terrorist cell or terrorist organization) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
