Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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.
