Zarechny district court in Sumy continued until March 30, 2018 term of arrest for Denis Pronaca, one of the top managers of the company “Snack Export”, which is a Corporation “S. Group” belonging to the family of the people’s Deputy Sergey Fishing. The SBU and Prosecutor General’s office suspect Probata in the organization of trade in the occupied territories of Donbas and annexed Crimea. One of the arguments that led in court, the Prosecutor of Prosecutor’s office of the Sumy area Alexey Bolgov, was the correspondence between the managers of Rybalka Denis Probata and Yuri Dzhabrailov, who also is now in jail on suspicion under article 258 “financing of terrorism”.

“In support of the petition was attached Protocol inspection information stored in the mobile terminal to the brand “Samsung” from November 2014, which belongs to Probecho in which there is official correspondence between the suspect and the suspect Promochem Dzhabrailov. About the organization, that organization, I emphasize, deliveries and settlements for the delivered products with “Snack Export”. The message is this: “When you load on the boxes is written “Lugansk”, and now discharged and obscure”, “Ukraine was, is left DNR pass.” Such are the message” – quoted excerpts from the case file to the court Prosecutor Alex Bolgov.

Prosecutors claim, from the sale of goods the company “Snack Export” taxes paid to the budget of the unrecognized “LNR” and “DNR”, thus sponsoring terrorism.

“Since supply of products that were made with intent through Belarus in the occupied territory, was shot customs duties and other taxes in favor of terrorist organizations “LNR” and “DNR”. So Promocao and was declared suspicion in Commission of this criminal offence”, – said the Prosecutor.

But lawyers for Denis Probata, demanding the release of his client, suddenly howled in court that the so-called “DNR” and “LNR” are not terrorist organizations, so the fact that trade with them is not a violation of the Ukrainian legislation and does not fall under article 258 of the Criminal code of Ukraine. Despite the official decision of the Prosecutor General in may 2014, the year of recognition “L-DNR” terrorists. The fact of the organization of trade in the occupied Donbas lawyers top Manager of the people’s Deputy from the Radical party Sergey Fishing did not mind.

“On the territory of Ukraine, terrorist organizations” DNR “and” LNR “. It is legally established. It sounds moral blasphemy. The liability arises only on the basis of the law. The territory concerned is not a terrorist organizations, and persons living in the area, are not terrorists. So I ask to refuse satisfaction of the petition for prolongation of term of detention”, – stated in court Vitaly Naum – defender Denis Probata.

In order to avoid future legal casuistry about the status of the so-called “LDNR”, public activists who were present at the hearing, intend to apply to the President and the Verkhovna Rada to legislatively define the status of the terrorist occupation administration in ORDA.

“The lawyers have expressed their opinion at the carelessness of our legislation. Today they knocked on the door to the President, knocked on the door to the Verkhovna Rada that “DNR” and “LNR” is not recognized still terrorist organizations. Today, I believe, sums’ka Themis absolutely rigid. I hope for a more solid position of the prosecution, and hope that all my colleagues are also now realize that we must raise the more serious question of legislative recognition of the “LDNR” terrorist organizations”, – said the participant of anti-terrorist operation, a public activist Oleg Kravets, who was present at the Sumy court.

Zarechnyy the court listened to the arguments of lawyers and extended the arrest of Denis Probata for another 60 days. In General, the top Manager of the Rybalka, whose militiamen are accused of financing terrorism, is in jail since October 20 of last year, when he was detained by employees of SBU.
