Novoaidar district court of Luhansk region sentenced Russian army’s soldier Viktor Ageev to ten years-long imprisonment. His lawyer Viktor Chevguz reported that on Facebook.

According to him, the prosecutor’s office found out that Ageev joined the so-called ‘Luhansk People’s Republic’ as a contract soldier. The Russian army serviceman also faced charges with illegal storage of weapons and ammunition.

Ageev was detained in the combat area of Donbas last year. He confirmed that he served with the Russian Armed Forces.
