In Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky, Odesa region, the Security Service of Ukraine issued a suspicion notice to a pro-russian Internet propagandist who was promoting russian narratives.

This was reported by the Office of the Security Service of Ukraine in Odesa region.

According to the investigation, on his account on a social media platform which has been banned in Ukraine, the Ukrainian citizen had been actively distributing content denying the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine and glorifying of those who have been committing the armed aggression against Ukraine since 2014. A separatism supporter spread content from anti-Ukrainian groups and promoted the idea of ​​the "russian world."

The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) notes that during a search of the propagandist's smartphone and computer equipment, law enforcement officers found content that "constitutes evidence of his illegal activities."

The said citizen of Ukraine has been notified of suspicion for committing a crime under Part 2 of Art. 436-2 of the Criminal code of Ukraine ("Justification, recognition as lawful, denial of armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine, glorification of its participants"). The sanction of the article provides for restriction of liberty for up to five years or imprisonment for the same term with possible confiscation of property.
