 Former "Oplot" militant sentenced to three years in prison

The Court of Appeal of the Donetsk region sentenced former 'DPR' and 'Oplot' soldier to three years in prison.

Censor.NET reports citing SBU press-service.

The insurgent nicknamed Joe served the terrorists from November 2014 to February 2015. He patrolled the streets of the occupied city of Donetsk and guarded military warehouse and weaponry of terrorists, including "Grad" rocket systems.

The man was not directly involved in the military actions against the forces of the anti-terrorist operation (ATO). By the end of February 2015 the militant fled the illegal armed groups and returned to his native Dymytriv (former Myrnohrad) town in the Donetsk region, where he was detained by the SBU.
