In the city of Kramatorsk, the Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) jointly with the police detained a resident of Kurakhovskiy district who sided with pro-Russian militants and took an active part in the hostilities.

The attacker joined the terrorists in June 2014. He fought against Ukraine in the towns of Krasnogorovka, Makeyevka and Marinka. Following an active offensive by Ukrainian troops a militant left an armed gang and was trying to hide away from the law enforcement officers in the city of Kramatorsk, according to the SBU.
