Another Donetsk citizen gave up with “ruskii mir” ideology
Another citizen of Donetsk region returned to peaceful life in the framework of the SBU Program “Waiting for You at Home”.
In 2015, the man joined one of the illegal armed formations because of despair and hard material welfare. He convoyed people and repaired military equipment. The militant was promised official employment and salary of 15,000 Russian rubles but he did not get anything.
Without money, documents and being afraid of criminal responsibility for his membership in the illegal armed formation, the man had been hiding in Donetsk and did not dare to come back to the Ukraine controlled territory.
The SBU officers got to know about his voluntary refuse to fight against his own people and commit murders and other crimes to his compatriots. They offered him to take part in the Program “Waiting for You at Home”.
If in the process of the pretrial investigation it is established that he did not take direct part in military actions and did not commit any grave crimes, he will be released from criminal responsibility.
The former militant addressed those who has doubts about returning to the Ukraine controlled territory. He called them to act because their families and relatives, mothers and wives are waiting for them. Only time is working against them.
