Earlier, a militant from the so-called "Luhansk People’s Republic" in Donbas voluntarily surrendered at the position of one of the mechanized brigades of Ukraine's Armed Forces. This was reported by the press service of the JFO.
“We were just on combat duty and watching out to prevent enemy sabotage and reconnaissance group from passing through. We saw that some unknown person was moving in the direction of our positions. Watching closely, we allowed the person as close as possible. In a few minutes, we realized that this was a combatant with a weapon. When he came close to our observer, we quickly disarmed him and immediately reported to our commander," Ukrainian soldiers reported.
