One Ukrainian serviceman was captured by Russian occupation forces in the Donbas near Joint Forces Operation. The Joint Forces Operation Headquarters reported this on its Facebook page.

“On 17 December 2020, a serviceman’s absence was fixed during the personnel revision of one of the military units performing tasks in the Joint Forces Operation area. The search measures did not yield a positive result,” the statement reads.

The headquarters added that he had been detained by pro-Russian militants, who “try to use this fact cynically to discredit the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”

To recap, the militants returned the body of a Ukrainian militarist who had entered the occupied territory under intoxication without a weapon. The territory is controlled by the government of Ukraine. The examination established that the serviceman was strangled. Numerous bruises and abrasions were found on his body. The Russian side’s representatives stated that the soldier had died of alcohol or drug intoxication.
