The imaginary “Ukrainian saboteurs” were initially detained for hooliganism in Crimea


Russian newspaper “Kommersant” writes that the Court of Simferopol fined the so-called “Ukrainian saboteurs” Andriy Zahtey and Rydwan Suleymanov for disorderly conduct.

“Andriy Zahtey, a defendant in the criminal case on sabotage preparations by the Ukrainian special services in Crimea, received 15 days of arrest immediately after his detention for disorderly conduct. His alleged “accomplice” Rydwan Suleymanov is held accountable for hooliganism too,” reports the newspaper.

Judge of the Zheleznodorozhny District Court of Simferopol Tatyana Belinchuk delivered the ruling on Zahtey’s punishment for disorderly conduct on August 8, one day after his and Suleymanov’s detention.

“According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Zahtey already has two criminal records. The first six and a half years of imprisonment he received for robbery in 1998 and was released on parole after four years. Ten years later, in 2008, Zahtey was sentenced to a fine for forgery,” recalls the author of the publication.

As we have informed, the FSB said the prevention of terrorist acts in Crimea, allegedly prepared by the Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Also the FSB stated on supposedly “elimination of an intelligence network of the Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in Crimea” and detention of an intelligence officer Evgeny Panov.

Later Russia’s Foreign Ministry read out aloud the name of another one allegedly “saboteur”. He was a builder from Yevpatoriya Andriy Zahtey.

Adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko said that the fake “Ukrainian saboteur” Zahtey detained in Crimean was a jailbird.
