35. She is not an enemy combatant. She is a collaborator.

If she was an enemy combatant, she would be entitled to the protections of the Geneva Convention. As a result, if she was an enemy combatant, she could be neither tried nor punished.

The Geneva Convention does not protect collaborators against prosecution or punishment for violations of their country's domestic law. So no, she is not an enemy combatant. She is a traitorous collaborator. The nature of the due process to which she is entitled, and the potential punishment she faces, depends on Ukrainian domestic law.
