Ukrainian army serviceman died from hypothermia because his commanders forgot to release him from a post of duty, a spokesperson of Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) People’s Militia Major Andrey Marochko stated during a briefing in Lugansk Information Center.
“Ukrainian Command does not care for its personnel serving in the zone of so-called ‘antiterrorist operation’ (Kiev junta’s punitive operation – Editor). Therefore, we continue to receive information on the non-combat casualties of the Ukrainian army,” he stressed.
“On December 4th, at 2.10 PM, a body of the Ukrainian army serviceman, junior sergeant D. Mishchishin was discovered in the woods near Pshenichnoye village. He died from hypothermia just because his commanders forgot to release him from a post of duty,” Marochko said.
“We also received information that about 2 weeks ago 26-years old Artur Pochepko was sent to a pre-trial detention center (PTDC) in Schastye town in Novoaydar district for rape. A couple of days ago, he was released from the PTDC by the nationalists of the ‘Aydar’ battalion for unknown deeds, probably because of his [criminal] actions,” the spokesperson LPR People’s Militia stated.
He also added that according to the available information Pochepko is about to leave the country “being afraid of the compatriots’ revenge for his crimes”.
Marochko informed earlier that two Ukrainian army officers, who served in the zone of Kiev junta’s punitive operation, committed suicide.
The Major also reported that a serviceman of the Ukrainian army committed suicide at the observation post in Bolotennoye village of Stanichno-Lugans
The Head of People’s Militia Administration Colonel Oleg Anashenko stated that the morale of Kiev junta’s military is deteriorating, they continue to loot and have armed disputes in the state of intoxication. Moreover, the incidents of hazing have increased, resulting in desertion and suicides among Kiev junta’s soldiers.
Ukrainian media confirmed the increase in the number of non-combat casualties among the Kiev junta’s serviceman due to hard drinking.
