Author: Maria Kholina

The so-called "mayor" of the occupied Mariupol, Oleh Morhun, is awaiting trial. He faces up to 10 years in prison, according to the press center of the State Bureau of Investigations.

Law enforcement authorities have completed their investigation into the appointed by the occupiers "mayor" of Mariupol. The case has now been transferred to the court.

He is accused of collaboration (Part 2 of Article 28, Part 5 of Article 111-1 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code). The traitor could face up to 10 years in prison with the confiscation of property.

According to the investigation, Morhun was previously the head of the Mariupol Police Department in the Donetsk region. The former law enforcement officer betrayed his oath in 2014 and sided with the occupiers.

A Zaporizhzhia court had previously sentenced him to 11 years in prison for involvement in a terrorist organization. For the past 8 years, the traitor has been evading justice in the occupied territories of the Donetsk region.

After the occupation forces took control of Mariupol, he willingly assumed the position of the so-called "mayor."

Occupation of Mariupol

Russian forces captured Mariupol and its surrounding areas in the spring of 2022, following months of fierce battles. Afterward, the occupiers turned the devastated city into their military base.

As previously reported by the mayor's advisor, Petro Andriushchenko, the invaders have increased inspections of the local population in Mariupol.
