The Security Service of Ukraine  has detained the owner of an agroholding in Kyiv on suspicion of supplying food to Russian forces on the left bank of the Kherson region – the agency stated on January 5.

"The Security Service has compiled evidence against the founder of one of the largest agroholdings in Ukraine, who is suspected of financing the armed aggression of the Russian Federation. SBU operatives arrested the suspect in the apartment of his son in Kyiv, where he was hiding and planning to escape to Russia," the agency's press service reported.

The SSU claims that the company under his control, located in the temporarily occupied left-bank area of Kherson, operates in the interests of the Russian Federation. Specifically, it "is among the main suppliers of food products for Russian troops located in the south of Ukraine."

 

 

According to the SSU, in May 2022, the entrepreneur registered his company with the occupation's "Federal Tax Service office for the Kherson region of the Russian Federation." Since then, the company allegedly pays over 100,000 Russian rubles monthly to the budget of the local occupation administration of the Russian Federation as "taxes."

The agency also accuses the company of being a donor to the Russian "Fund to Support Participants of Special Military Operations" (referring to the full-scale war against Ukraine in Russian terminology). Additionally, according to its information, Russian forces use the agroholding's warehouses to store their weapons and ammunition.

The man has been notified of suspicion of assisting the state-aggressor. His name and the name of the agroholding are not disclosed.
