The collaborator was notified of suspicion in absentia on October 18.
He is charged under Part 5 of Article 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

As IMI reported, Andriy Kior's collaboration with the Russian occupiers became known in May.
Andriy Kior studied at the Moscow Institute of Cinematography. He took up journalism after working in business, had worked for several years in Poland and then in Ukraine.
He began his journalistic work at the press center of the Illich MMP as a correspondent for "Illichivets" newspaper. He had worked on television, too, and founded his own TV studio "Adamakha."
He was the president of a media holding in Metinvest, virtually running the MTV channel, "Priazovsky Rabochy" newspaper, and the mrpl.city website. He was developing his own production studio. Recently, his services were being used by local TV channels.
With the beginning of the full-scale offensive of the russian federation on Ukraine, Kior organized a shelter in the basement of his house on Kuindzhi Street, where about 80 people were hiding. During one of the shellings, his house burned down completely.
