Another participant of SBU Program "Waiting for You at Home" is released from criminal responsibility by court
One more participant of the SBU Program "Waiting for You at Home" was released from criminal liability
The SBU operatives established that the resident of Donetsk region in 2014, under the calls of propagandists of "Novorosia", joined the "DNR" illegal armed formations. As a part of the criminal formation, the man was arranging illegal check-points of the militants and carried out pass control.
Becoming a witness of the real ideals of the "russkiy mir" - robberies and victimization of the civilian population by terrorists, he voluntarily left the militants’ ranges. Being afraid of the criminal responsibility for his actions, he had been hiding for a long time on the territories controlled by Ukrainian government.
Knowing from the TV about the SBU program "Waiting for You at Home" he decided to use it. The man voluntarily applied to the law enforcement agencies, providing assistance to the investigation.
After careful examination, the SBU officers established that the man was not directly involved in hostilities and didn’t commit other crimes.
Having considered the case materials, the Sloviansk District court of Donetsk region decided to release the former militant from criminal responsibility. Now he is at home with his family.
Coming back to the peaceful life, the former participant of the illegal armed formation is confident in the correctness of his decision and calls the other "DNR / LNR" militants to follow his example.
