The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) detained Ukrainian serviceman who deserted from Ukraine’s Armed Forces with intention to serve in Russian Army. This was reported by the SBU press service.

The deserter was hiding in one of the apartments in Zaporizhia city. He had weapons and falsified documents that hide his involvement in the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) in Donbas.

"The operatives of the Security Service detained a deserter in one of the apartments where he was hiding. During the search in his temporary premises, officers seized Makarov gun, Fort gun and nearly four thousand cartridges of various caliber, as well as fake seals of the Defense Ministry of Ukraine, Interior Ministry and one of the Zaporizhia District Military Committees. With the help of false seals, the deserter planned to make new documents to hide the fact of his participation in the Anti-Terrorist Operation in Donbas on Ukrainian side, "the report said.  

Law enforcers opened criminal proceedings under Part 3 of Article 408 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
