The "DNR" intends to "judge" a captive fighter of the AFU, accusing him of "terrorism and illegal crossing of border" of the pseudo-republic.

It is reported that on the night of February 16th to 17th, 2018, "a reconnaissance group consisting of eight soldiers of the 57th separate motorized infantry brigade of the AFU, including the said soldier, illegally crossed the state border of the DNR to collect intelligence information and for subsequent commission of sabotage". As a result, the "DNR" militants captured the Ukrainian serviceman, and now they want to "judge" him.
