On the administrative border with the Russia-annexed Crimea, at the checkpoint “Chongar”, Ukrainian law enforcement officers exposed a militant who had previously participated in an illegal armed formation in the territory of the occupied Donbass.

The Azov-Black Sea Regional Department of the State Border Service of Ukraine reported about the detention on Facebook.

A 47-year-old man told the Ukrainian border guards that he received the call sign Chingiz in the Somali assault battalion led by the now-eliminated war criminal Mikhail Tolstykh (call sign Givi) and was training personnel for serving at the so-called republic checkpoints.

After some time, being disappointed in the fake “DPR” and “LPR”, the former associate of “Givi” started working as a security guard in the city of Alchevsk in the occupied part of Luhansk region. Then in search of a better life he went to Moscow. But the working conditions there did not satisfy him either, and he tried to get to Kyiv through a Kerch bridge and then through the administrative border to get a job.
