Ukrainian Internet providers, which provided services for the People’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk, are accused of state treason. The Security Service of Ukraine found that the managers and management of providers, despite the fact that they were aware of the public danger and the frank anti-state nature of their actions, provided said services, in particular, in the territories of Donbass that are not controlled by Ukraine.

The Ukrainian security report says that traffic transit occurred through the connection of communication channels with the Russian Federation to the networks of domestic telecommunications nodes and its subsequent direction to a Donetsk provider. It served anti-Ukrainian information web resources.

Such actions, according to the Ukrainian Security Service, cause great harm to the national security of Ukraine. They believe that Russian special services are actively using the Internet to conduct special information operations against Ukraine.

In the premises of these providers in Kiev and Kiev region, Odessa and Kharkov, law enforcers seized computer equipment and materials confirming the implementation of ‘illegal activities’. Criminal proceedings on “State Treason” and “Creation of a terrorist group or a terrorist organization” are open.
