The Investigative Committee of Russia accused in absentia the head of Ukrainian military intelligence, Kirill Budanov, and several other high-ranking Ukrainian officers of committing terrorist attacks on Russian territory. All of them will be put on the wanted list. This is stated in the TG channel of the RF IC.
The Investigative Committee accused the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry Budanov, the commander of the Ukrainian Air Force Oleshchuk, the commander of the Naval Forces Neizhpapa and the commander of the 383rd separate regiment drones Burdenyuk in committing terrorist attacks on Russian territory. Reportedly, between April 2022 and September 2023, more than a hundred drone strikes were carried out on the territory of Russian regions, including Crimea. The above persons are involved in organizing terrorist attacks on Russian territory.
(...) in the near future it is planned to put them on the wanted list and choose a preventive measure in the form of detention in absentia
- says the message of the RF IC.
The criminal case against Budanov, Oleshchuk, Neizhpapa, Burdenyuk and as yet unidentified persons involved in terrorist attacks is being investigated by the Main Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia.
At the beginning of September this year, it was reported that Russian counterintelligence had identified the main organizer of Ukrainian drone strikes on Russian military airfields. He turned out to be the commander of the 383rd separate regiment of remotely controlled aircraft of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Sergei Burdenyuk, who received orders from high-ranking generals of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and Main Intelligence Directorate. Now the involvement of the Ukrainian colonel in attacks on civilian targets on Russian territory has been proven. Allegedly, the 383rd separate regiment, headed by Burdenyuk, was formed in February-March 2022 precisely for the purpose of striking Russian territory using drones.
