As a result of a special operation in Kropyvnytskyi, a criminal group of extortionists led by a city council deputy was neutralized. This was reported by the SSU press service. Under his leadership, the criminals extorted $92,000 from a local entrepreneur, with whom the deputy had a joint business. The victim was supposed to transfer this amount to the criminals as payment for a non-existent debt to the leader of the criminal group.

SSU operatives detained the deputy in the regional center during the transfer of the second part of the 'tribute.' Before that, the Ukrainian special service documented the fact of him receiving the first 'installment' from the entrepreneur.

According to the investigation, the suspect repeatedly posted anti-Ukrainian publications on his page in a banned social network. He called on Ukrainians to seize state power with weapons and join Russia. In his posts, he also expressed gratitude to the president of the aggressor state for the conduct of the so-called 'special operation.'
