Two more mercenaries surrendered to Ukrainian border guards: Their “army” beat them

Ukrainian checkpoint


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.

We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

            Very good! Tell the guy beside you not bad.
            It was not running hot because there were supposed to be no hostilities.
            In other words Russia was acting like an ill mannered thug, as usual.
            History will probably say this incident was the start of the new Cold War.
            By the way that POS as you call was an Arlighe Burke Destroyer. It can knock out a ballistic missile and can park a cruse missile in Putin’s blow hole any time day or night, 24/7.
            Oh by the way that SU-24 is the same type of plane that your rebels shot down with a puney MANPED. I think a SPY1 radar with an SM3 block 1B missile can handle it.

            Why Russia is so much easier. It doesn’t much to get Russia to over react to even the most minor provocation.
            I wonder how easy it will be will be to get Russia to back stab Belarus?
            Maybe get the Caucuses stirred up.
            Azerbaijan seems to like to thumb it’s nose at Russia and they are building a pipeline to compete with Russia’s. Russia supports Armenia The two love to hate each other. Easy pickings.

            According to your propaganda all it took was a conversation by Vicki Nuland.
            Hyper sonic missiles are easy to track because they have a huge heat signature. The Agies system on the Arlighe Burke destroyers and Ticonderogia. Cruisers have successfully tracked and destroyed targets during reentry into the atmosphere. Bit faster than hyper sonic.
            As a side note the Tomahawk has been upgraded to an Anti ship missile. Now any Navy ship bigger than row boat can take out a ship 1000 miles away. It can also be targeted by a plane.

          Why don’t you ask the Iranians who jacked up their nuclear program?
          Are you sure you really want to go there?

          That’s three cut and pastes for you. What is your shift almost over? You guys at the St Pete’s Palace Pure Putin Purgerative Propganda have a quota?

    Ukraine…be decent to them. Show that you are the better people. Don’t behave like thugs.

  3. Avatar Dean Venture says:

    Events like this are a great way to show any Russian supporters in the East what a terrible choice they made. Treat them justly, and show this as one more reason life in Ukraine is so much better than Russia. the more you can get to defect, the more you bleed Russia’s resources, and the fewer you have to deal with in combat.

    1. Avatar Dean Venture says:

      Then by all means enlighten me. Or do you attempt to confine the debate to vague statements that don’t really mean anything?

    How they are treated will be determined by their conduct during this shit storm. If they were among those tortured or murdered or raped or stole they won’t be treated gently. Either way I don’t envy them.

  5. Avatar Murf says:

    These guts should be treated like kings. They have valuable short term information. They are also a important propaganda coup. Their defection undermines enemy morale.
    Unfortunately that is the extent of their usefulness.
    The next time some one comes over,turn them. Make them a double agent.
    Sincerely promise them what ever they want, land, money, security, hookers, whatever and be prepared to deliver.
    Once they are back with their former comrades they can provide a long term wealth of information.
    I they are caught give the official denial (wink wink nudge nudge say no more!)
    The mere thought a turn coat in their midst will be physiological win.
    The seeds of doubt bring forth bitter fruit.

      Kyten Forrest Massacre.
      90k German soldiers surrendered at Stalingrad. 10k came home.

      What’s official body count for the GULAGs.
      What’s Motorola’s body count up to now?
      Honestly Su. you keep bring up things try to make the US look bad but which Russia is far worse. I know that in your Propaganda class they taught you to accuse the enemy of what you are guility of But this is the information age all your nations sins are there for reading. The difference between the US and Russia is we realize our mistakes and try to correct them.
      Russia doesn’t even acknowledge they happened.
      The first step in repeating a mistake is to admit you made one.
      Oh and don’t think that any one is fooled by your newby deflections from the real issue of Russia back stabbing it’s closest ally.
      We have been at this for along time. You trolls zip in for a while talk a bunch of smack and then fade into electron land. Unourned and forgotten.
      Such is the fate of the unjust.

    This is a little difficult to swallow. There needs to be a little more to this to add credibility.

    it is very obvious that the russian fascist trolls- the trash serving putin- have now specially been ordered to specifically target the Euromaidan website.
    Their trolling is designed to work like a wrench in the machinery and sabotage meaningful discourse on this website.
    mikhail in “london” Hristo, suvolk etc are some of them

    IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO ANSWER THEM RATHER IGNORE THEM because their sabotage functions by ATTRACTING ANSWERS TO THEIR TROLLING COMMENTS and thus sabotaging meaningful discourse on this website.
