LUHANSK, October 28. /TASS/. Militias in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) said on Tuesday they have released in a gesture of good will some 150 Ukrainian troops encircled near a village to the north-west of Luhansk.
The Ukrainian government forces had been trapped near the Smeloye village for several weeks and lacked food and water supplies. Many troops have caught cold and need medical aid.
A spokesman for the local militias said the LPR has repeatedly offered the troops to leave the encirclement after seizing their weapons. However, they said they feared punishment from the Ukrainian forces.
Late on Monday, the encircled troops decided to surrender their post.
