Accomplice of militants detained in JFO zone in Donbas
Employees of the military counterintelligence of the Security Service of Ukraine, as part of the Ukrainian Joint Forces, in cooperation with police officers of the Bakhmut unit, have exposed and detained a member of the "DPR" illegal armed group who joined the ranks of militants in 2014, at the age of 15.
According to the Facebook page of the press center of the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO), law enforcers established that in 2014, a teenager from Donetsk region, under the influence of pro-Russian propaganda and promises of financial benefits, voluntarily joined the "DPR."
"Armed with an automatic rifle, a senior pupil served at a checkpoint and patrolled the streets of the town of Chasiv Yar. Patriotic citizens, identified as violators of the curfew introduced by militants, were taken to the local headquarters of the 'DPR'," the report says.
With the beginning of the liberation of Ukrainian towns from members of pro-Russian gangs, a minor accomplice of militants quit their ranks and decided to leave the town for a while.
Based on the materials of the military counterintelligence of the SBU, criminal proceedings were opened against this Ukrainian citizen under Article 260 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (the creation of paramilitary or armed groups not provided for by law). The detainee cooperates with investigators.
