SIMFEROPOL, March 27, /ITAR-TASS/. The law enforcement agencies in the Russian Republic of Crimea have completed an inquiry prior to investigation against several Ukrainian servicemen, namely Major General Voronchenko, Colonel Mamchur, Lieutenant Colonel Delyatitsky and Major Lomtev. All of them were released from custody, regional agencies told news agency CrimeaInform.
Servicemen were detained on suspicions of abetment to terrorist organisations in Crimea, but “these citizens did not fulfil criminal orders from Kiev and co-operated with security services during the inquiry.”
Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu has earlier urged the Crimean leadership not to hamper leaving of Ukrainian servicemen who wanted to continue military service in Ukraine and acted in the Russian Republic of Crimea obeying to military regulations of their homeland. The defence minister set a task to escort them to the border by Russian military police.
