Ukrainian who was on duty at the checkpoint in Karlivka village from the side of illegal armed groups was detained in Donetsk region. This was reported by the press service of Ukraine’s National Police.
"A 25-year-old resident of Selidove, aiming to receive wages, voluntarily joined the ranks of illegal armed groups in 2014. He was responsible for checking citizens and transport at the checkpoint in Karlivka, and he is now being pressed charges, the report said.
As law enforcers found out, the detainee went to "work" by the proposal of his friend in 2014. Militants promised to pay 240 dollars. He "was on duty" in civilian clothes with a gun in his hands.
