Yesterday, Feb. 8, 46 soldiers of the 53rd separate mechanized brigade, who had grown unsatisfied with living conditions at the ‘Shyrokyi Lan’ shooting range, as well as with general treatment of their supplies, food, and living by the command, decided to walk to Mykolaiv (26 kilometers) in order to demand immediate reaction to the situation by the military prosecution.

Censor.NET informs citing Prestupnosti.NET website.

One of the brigade's soldiers with call sign 'Putia' told the medium that some mattresses have lice in them, the medicines are past due, while volunteer-supplied aid is being exported from the brigade in large quantities.



"They say they sleep in the snow and cannot even take a shower. One of the soldiers said he took a shower for the last time on Dec. 25 of last year," the medium reports.

The soldier also said that they had appealed regarding the issue many times, but there has been no reaction, so they decided to walk to the prosecutor's office.

In the afternoon of Feb. 8, the soldiers were joined by several volunteers, including volunteer Iryna Abramova. She informed that they addressed the Mykolaiv state regional administration for providing them with a bus to get to Mykolaiv. Sometime later the soldiers were approached by their brigade commander, who stopped them and decided to solve the problem on spot.

Mykolaiv governor Vadym Merikov reacted with a statement that the military prosecutor should be the one heading towards the soldiers: "The military prosecutor, who's hiding in the offices, should move his butt and go see the soldiers! I have ordered to send the bus for the military, and my aide is leaving to meet them."
