Kyiv Independent | Receiving, distributing Russian humanitarian aid in occupied territories to be considered collaborationism, 16 Aug
The law on collaboration[] came into force on Aug. 16.
Ukriform | The Ministry of Internal Affairs said who will be considered a collaborator in the territories captured by the Russian Federation, 16 Aug
"It should be determined on a case-by-case basis. It is mostly difficult to establish, because people who are served with suspicion in absentia are in temporarily occupied territories. Often cooperation with the occupiers is based on the fact that people are promised leadership positions, and it can also be a financial reward," [spokeswoman of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Alyona Matveeva] said.  Also, according to her, people can cooperate with the aggressor in order to obtain some benefit for themselves or through revenge.
[...]
According to her, the punishment for collaboration with the Russian Federation is also determined separately in each case. "For example, if a person called to support the military of the Russian Federation or provided some information, took humanitarian aid (from the Russians - ed.) and distributed it--this is one punishment, if it is about some more serious actions of a person, for example, when a person's collaborative activity had such an impact that someone died because of it--the term in this case can be more serious, even up to life imprisonment," the spokeswoman said.

Although this Newsweek story attributes UA counter-intelligence work product derogating MSM "dissindents" to a "Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation" (2021), the Myrotvorets "black list" (of white "influencers") has been circulating UA civil defense agencies and so-called Pro-Russia social media "messaging systems" far longer than Russia has occupied Ukraine ("About the Center", 23.08.2014 08:46 + NATO imprimatur) and NATO allies formally instituted telecom censorship. In consideration of hours of A/V interviews with terrified, reluctant Donbas civilians, countless ICC, ICJ human rights complaints filed under the radar of TRUMP treason, and recent purge of SBU and prosecutor offices, it occurs to me that now, this subthread, is a the correct place to acknowledge the irresistable services of a free press and "democratic processes" in a war against AUTHORITARIANISM.
