The detainee was the resident of Luhansk region who was earlier reported missing. It is known that the man was serving among the invaders and fought against Ukrainian Armed Forces in 2014-2015. After that, he was implementing combat duties near Sorokino on the occupied Donbas territories.
The militant is suspected in violation of territorial integrity and integrity of Ukraine as well as in creating of a terroristic group or organization. The law enforcers are deciding about choosing the preventive measure in the form of holding in custody.
As it was reported earlier, one Ukrainian military died in the zone of the Joint Forces Operation during the hostile attack. He sustained injury incompatible with life, as the HQ of the JFO reported.
“The circumstances of the task group of the military service are being investigated. The Command of the Joint Forces Operation expresses its condolences to the relatives and family of the deceased,” the message said.
