War in the Donbas

As reported by the press center of the State Border Service of Ukraine today, two “DNR” mercenaries surrendered to Ukrainian border guards because their “army” stopped paying their salaries and beat them.

The militants were detained at a checkpoint “Zolota” (Golden). They came from the territory occupied by Russia. One of them had obvious signs of beating.

During questioning, they stated that they “served” in an illegal armed group and produced corresponding IDs. Also, the detainees said that they want to live in the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities, because they recently have been subjected to physical assaults and have not been paid their salaries.

Later the thugs were transferred to the Security Service of Ukraine for a full investigation.
