Prosecutors in the eastern Donetsk region said on Tuesday that they had handed a Ukrainian man 15 years behind bars for passing sensitive military information to Russian forces.

Since Russian forces invaded in February 2022, prosecutors in Ukraine have opened thousands of criminal cases into collaboration.

According to the regional prosecutor’s office, the man, who was not identified, committed high treason by passing information on the location of Ukrainian troops in the area to Russian forces.

“Fifteen years behind bars — Russian agent who directed hostile attacks on Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel and armored vehicles is sentenced,” it announced in a statement.

The prosecutors said that in May of last year, the resident of Kostyantynivka, a town near the frontline, disclosed locations of Ukrainian troop deployments and movements of Kyiv’s artillery in the region via the Telegram messenger service.

It was stated that the man’s Russian handler had promised payment in return but had not fulfilled the promise.

Russian forces are advancing steadily in the industrial Donetsk region, which the Kremlin claims is part of Russia, amid critical manpower and ammunition shortages in Ukraine.

Last year, the United Nations reported that Ukraine had opened more than 6,600 criminal cases “against individuals for collaboration and other conflict-related crimes” since the war began.
