MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Three Ukrainian servicemen have joined the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in 24 hours, DPR defense ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin said on Friday.
According to Basurin, Ukrainian servicemen have crossed the contact line near the Novolaspa settlement in the Telmanovsky district. "This is connected with the fact that many servicemen cannot contact their families, their service has expired, but commanders extend their contract automatically," he explained.
This is not the first case when Ukrainian servicemen join the self-proclaimed republics in Donbas because they do not agree with the actions of the Kiev authorities. In particular, on September 30, two Ukrainian servicemen joined Donbas self-defense forces in Gorlovka.
On June 22, it was reported that Ukrainian former advisor to the defense minister, Major General Alexander Kolomiets joined DPR. Earlier, Luhansk customs service head Oleg Chernousov, Ukrainian intelligence service’s Alexey Miroshnichenko and his brother Yury, who worked in the Ukrainian Embassy in Paris, returned to Luhansk because they did not support Kiev’s policy.
