In the city of Kostanay (Kazakhstan), a court sentenced a local resident who had fought on the side of militants in Donbas to 4.5 years in prison. This was reported by Interfax with reference to the press service of the regional court.
"Court №2 of the city of Kostanay sentenced local resident Yevhen Shcherbak to four and a half years in prison for participating in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine," the statement said.
A citizen of Kazakhstan was convicted as a participant in an armed conflict on the territory of a foreign state without signs of mercenary activity.
As we reported earlier, еhe militants demand from the citizens of Ukraine who live in occupied Donbas and who got the passports after April 2014 to ‘legalize’ in the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).
The issue is about ‘the order’ of Denis Pushilin, the ‘head’ of self-proclaimed DPR, which obliges the citizens of Ukraine who got the Ukrainian passport after April 7, 2014, and living in the territory of occupied Donbas to process ‘DPR passport’.
