The detained earlier in Toretsk (Donetska Oblast) ex-militant of ‘DNR’, participant of Vostok armed gang, told about captured Ukrainian soldiers being executed by the militia, according to the SBU press service’s Facebook.
“During an interrogation with the security service officials the detained man gave information testifying that militants kill Ukrainian prisoners of war,” the statement informs.
The perpetrator moved to occupied Donetsk in 2014, where he entered the militia expecting good payment. His job was to bring provision to the militants on the front line. Having realized it wasn’t profitable, the man returned to Ukraine. Donetsk Oblast Police together with the SBU detained the former militant. He is facing from three to eight years of imprisonment.
