The man had been part of illegal armed groups fighting Ukrainian forces in Donbas until he was injured and dismissed for medical reasons in 2016. However, in November 2018, occupation authorities again drafted him for "service."

The captive was handed over to the SBU security operatives for further questioning. The investigation is underway.
