Ukrainian infantrymen voluntarily went over to the side of the liberators of Donbass, FAN writes, citing information from the People’s Militia Department of the DPR.
“The soldiers who laid down their arms belonged to the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” the statement said.
In addition, the DPR forces seized a Ukrainian tank and armored vehicles. As trophies, Donetsk soldiers got NLAW and Javelin anti-tank missile systems, which were previously transferred to Ukraine as military support from the West.
