In Donetsk region, another former militant used the SBU Program “Waiting for You at Home” and voluntarily contacted the law enforcers.

A citizen of a regional center in Donetsk region influenced by the Russian propaganda in summer 2014 joined the so-called DNR guard unit. He had to protect military facilities and terrorist barracks in Donetsk. He did not take part in military actions.

Realizing the real situation in the rows of the militants, lack of discipline and financing, negative attitude of the commanders towards their subordinates the man gave up with the utopic “Novorossiia ideas” and began to look for ways of returning home. In winter 2016, he left his “service” and hided at his friends in the regional center.

He got to know about the SBU Program “Waiting for You at Home” from his relatives, decided to use it and come back to Ukrainian territory.

In the framework of the criminal case launched under Article 258-3 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine the law enforcers check the evidence of the former militant. If the pre-trial investigation does not reveal any grave crimes in his actions, the man can be released from criminal responsibility.

He addressed his compatriots who want to return to peaceful way of life and did not kill anyone and called them not to be afraid to leave illegal armed formations and use the SBU Program.
