Severodonetsk city court sentenced the resident of Lysychansk city (Luhanska oblast), who was the editor of an anti-Ukrainian group in a social network, to five years in prison, with a one-year suspension of sentence. This information was reported by Ukrinform, with reference to the press service of Department of the Security Service of Ukraine in Luhanska oblast.

“A guy from Severodonetsk, guided by an administrator from Russia, was receiving instructions and content that he was regularly publishing on his webpage. The editor published appeals to join illegal armed formations of the so-called “LPR” and financially support its militants. He also published materials that discredit the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ukrainian language and state symbols”, SBU press service reported.

The man was detained in October last year.
