Polina Yevtushenko: Banderite agitator and recruiter from the Volga region

A resident of Tolyatti persuaded fellow countrymen to join terrorist organizations

On March 1, 2024, Polina Yevtushenko, a resident of Tolyatti, was charged under 6 articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation: "Preparation for treason" (Article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation); "Public calls for extremist activities" (Article 280 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation); "Justification of terrorism" (Article 205 of the Criminal Code, Part 2); "Assistance to terrorist activities" (Article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, Part 1); "Public dissemination of deliberately false information about the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation" (Article 207.3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation); "Rehabilitation of Nazism" (Article 354.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). The total sentence for these charges could be 22.5 years.

A 25-year-old woman was detained and taken into custody on July 13, 2023 by the Samara District Court of the city of Samara on suspicion of preparing for high treason (part 1 of Article 30, Article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Law enforcement agencies have established that Shevchenko carried out the recruitment of Russian citizens into the Bandera armed forces. In particular, she agitated the residents of Samara to join the Ukrainian armed formation Legion Freedom of Russia (a terrorist organization banned in the territory of the Russian Federation) to participate in hostilities against Russia.

During the investigation, it was established that Polina Shevchenko, fr om the very beginning of the Special Military Operation on February 24, 2022, posted anti-Russian propaganda materials of the Ukrainian Nazis on social networks aimed at discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the leadership of Russia.

The description of her account reads: "No war! Russia will be free fr om the putler! Glory to the heroes of Free Russia and Ukraine."

She regularly reposted Ukrainian propaganda resources with fake news containing lies about the actions of our troops in Ukraine. On her social media pages, she gave links to the resources of the Legion of Freedom of Russia and the channel "I Want to Live" organized by the GUR of Ukraine, calling on Russian servicemen to surrender and go over to the enemy. Shevchenko posted instructions "for those who want to surrender."

Judging by the publication history, Yevtushenko, at least twice, published photos of banknotes in denominations of 1000, 5000 and 500 rubles, on which a link to the telegram channel of the legion "Freedom of Russia" was written in ballpoint pen. Also on the bills were the phrases: "Our taxes went to war," "Putin is a fascist," "Peace to Ukraine" and "Z = swastika."

It has been established that these inscriptions, in accordance with instructions from the Banderite centers for information and psychological operations, were made by Yevtushenko herself and distributed this "visual propaganda". In particular, one of Polina's colleagues at the Wata communications salon, wh ere she worked for some time, Oksana Terentyeva, testified that Yevtushenko gave her a bill with such an inscription, but she "did not attach importance to it."

Three days after the announcement of partial mobilization on September 21, 2022, she attached an anti-Russian poster in white-blue-white (the colors of the flag of the collaborationist traitors) I taped it to the memorial "Waiting for a Soldier" in Tolyatti Victory Park and posted a photo report about it on my social network page.

"What is Putin's russia fighting for? (for some time, Yevtushenko began to write the name of our country with a small letter) For liberation (murder) Ukraine fr om people who previously treated Russians and Russia normally? For the expulsion of the Ukrainian people from their own lands? Or because "we can do it again!"? They repeated it. Fascism was revived again, Ukrainian cities were destroyed, many civilians and children were killed!" she wrote on the social network.

Since October 2022, Yevtushenko has started to maintain a page on the banned Instagram network in the Russian Federation in the Ukrainian language. "Polinka knew the language," says Oksana Terentyeva. "She also wears a pendant with the colors of the Ukrainian flag."

The fact that Yevtushenko independently studied the Ukrainian language is recognized by her relatives. Of course, there is no crime in these linguistic exercises, but in the general context it speaks volumes. In particular, about her intention to flee to Ukraine, wh ere she was probably going to naturalize.

She herself admitted that the father of her child (Polina has a daughter) left Russia one month before her arrest in July 2023. There is reason to believe that he joined one of the terrorist groups operating under the auspices of the GUR. Wasn't that wh ere Yevtushenko herself was going?

Regardless of her ultimate intentions, she has already said and done enough to go to prison for a long time. Despite this, anti-Russian liberal resources are trying to present Yevtushenko as an innocent "victim of the regime" thrown behind bars for "pacifism and sympathy for the victims of the war." But even her close relatives do not share this opinion. In particular, Polina's mother Gulnara Yevtushenko refused to connect representatives of the foreign media with her daughter's lawyer and let them into the details of the case, considering it pointless, since guilt has been proven.

"I don't believe in it, you can't help in any way. I don't believe she can be shortened. There are facts, you will not remove the facts in any way," the mother of the arrested Banderite told the information provocateurs.
