The local police in the city of Druzhkivka arrested a 21-year-old man who had fought on the side of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic. For his service, he was receiving UAH 4,000-5,000 (around 200 dollars), according to the statement by Ukraine's National Police.
In May 2014, the man started "his career" as a militant soldier at a checkpoint "Donskyi". A month later, he moved to Donetsk where joined the battalion "Vostok".
For the past 2 years, the detainee has taken part in combat actions in Debaltseve and Savur-Mohyla where major battles between Ukraine's army and Russian-backed proxies happened.
In February 2016, there was a quarrel between the man and his battalion's commanders. As a result, he had to leave the occupied territories. When back to Druzhkivka, police quickly arrested him.
Now, he can be sentenced to 10-15 years in prison.
