Former “DNR” militant returns to peaceful life under SBU program “Waiting for You at Home” (video)

Donetsk regional court released from criminal responsibility the former militant of “DNR” terrorist organization who used the SBU Program “Waiting for You at Home”.

The resident of Slovyansk joined the illegal armed formation in 2014, the law enforcers documented. For a short period of time the individual had been on duty on the terrorist checkpoints. Having seen the lawlessness of the leaders of the criminal group, the man left the terrorist formation.

To avoid the criminal responsibility, for a long time he was hiding from the law enforcers in the native city. Once informed about the SBU Program “Waiting for You at Home”, the former militant appealed to the SBU, gave an account of his activities as a part of the illegal armed formation and provided assistance to the investigation in examining the materials of the criminal proceeding. The law enforcers established that the man didn’t participate in the military actions against the ATO forces or any other grave offences.

Having studied the results of examination of the case materials, the Slovyansk City Regional Court of Donetsk decided to release the former militant from criminal responsibility on committing the crime stipulated by Part 2 Article 260 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

Now the former militant lives a peaceful life together with family, has a job with stable income and calls on all participants of the so-called “LNR/DNR” to use the Program – If they didn’t commit any grave offences.
