Former DNR militant returns to regular life by SBU Program
The SBU officers in the framework of the Program “Waiting for You at Home” persuaded former DNR militant to lay down arms and return to normal life.
The Law enforcers found out that the resident of Kostiantynivka, Donetsk Region, joined terrorists and took part in auto patrol of the so-called DNR. After witnessing militants’ harassment and inhuman treatment towards subordinates the man decided to leave the illegal armed group.
Once the SBU officers became aware of the man’s voluntary refusal to fight against his own nation and commit crimes, they offered him to use the Program “Waiting for You at Home”.
Former militant informed the law enforcement authorities about all circumstances of his participation in the terrorist illegal armed group and actively facilitated the pretrial investigation. Taking that in account, the court released the man from criminal responsibility for crime stipulated in part 2 article 260 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Having received the court decision former illegal armed group member called upon the militants not to be afraid to lay down arms and return to their families.
