The Security Service of Ukraine has identified two traitors who corrected a Russian missile attack on a cafe in the village of Groza in Kharkiv region on October 5.

This was reported by the Prosecutor General’s Office.

The perpetrators were two local residents, 30-year-old Volodymyr Mamon and his younger brother, 23-year-old Dmytro Mamon, who sided with the racists during the occupation of the region.

According to the SBU, the defendants received “positions” in the ranks of the occupation “Department of Internal Affairs of the Military-Civilian Administration of Kharkiv Region” for this. There, one of them was appointed “driver of the convoy group” and the other “inspector of the road patrol service”.

However, on the eve of the liberation of the region, both traitors and their families fled to Russia, where they continued to work for the aggressor country.

On the instructions of the Russian occupiers, they remotely began to form their own network of informants in the territory controlled by Ukraine. To do this, they secretly involved their relatives, neighbors, and acquaintances from the de-occupied cities and towns of Kharkiv region in subversive activities.

“Under the guise of friendly conversations and correspondence in the messenger, the traitors asked people for information about the deployment of the Defense Forces and mass events in the region. According to the investigation, since the beginning of October this year, both suspects began to collect information about the planned reburial of the fallen Ukrainian defender in the village of Groza. At the same time, they realized that civilians – their acquaintances from the village of Groza, including those who provided them with information – would surely die as a result of an enemy attack,” the statement said.

Having learned the exact address and time of the peaceful event, Volodymyr Mamon passed this information to the Russian occupiers.

The Russians used the information to launch a targeted attack on a Ukrainian village using the Iskander M tactical missile system.

Then, as a result of the Russian air attack, 53 civilians were killed, including a young child. Six more civilians were wounded.

Based on the evidence, SBU investigators served both offenders suspicion notices under Part. 2 Art. 28, ч. 2 Art. 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (high treason committed under martial law by prior conspiracy by a group of persons).

In addition, the criminal actions of Volodymyr Mamon are additionally qualified under Part. 5 Art. 27, ч. 2 Art. 28, ч. 2 Art. 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (aiding and abetting violations of the laws and customs of war, combined with premeditated murder, committed by prior conspiracy by a group of persons).

Since both offenders are hiding in Russia, comprehensive measures are being taken to establish their whereabouts and punish them.

The investigation was conducted by the SBU in Kharkiv region under the procedural supervision of the regional prosecutor’s office.
