It should be noted that the state prosecution demanded that the accused Davydenko be sentenced to 12 years in prison with a sentence in a maximum security colony. However, judge Andrei Paly took into account that the accused during the trial fully admitted his guilt and repented of his deed. Therefore, he sentenced Davydenko to 10,5 years in prison with a sentence in a maximum security colony. The hearing was held behind closed doors.
It should be added that according to the FSB and the court, Davydenko was recruited by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) to collect certain information on the territory of Crimea. He purposefully collected and transmitted to the SBU information on the activities of units and formations of the Federal Service of the National Guard of Russia, data on military technology and various facilities and equipment.
In April 2019, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea began consideration of the merits of the case. Prior to that, Davydenko spent more than a year in the Lefortovo pre-trial detention center (Moscow).
