According to the report, 48-year-old resident of Krasnaia Sloboda arrived in Donetsk, where he referred to the so-called "military commissariat," which hires mercenaries. For his participation in terrorist activities, he was promised $360 a month. The detainee received weapons and went to the militants servicing BM-21 Grad rocket launchers.
The mercenary was detained by the SBU, when he came home on leave. The perpetrator was informed of suspicion under Art. 258-3 (terrorism) of the Criminal Code and was detained.
Another militant who joined the "DPR" terrorists due to mercenary motives, was detained by the SBU in Sviatohorsk of the Donetsk region. In addition to combat missions, the mercenary frequently traveled to the Kharkiv region, where he tried to recruit locals. Then he fled to Russia.
The SBU detained the criminal upon his return home from Russia.
