“From 2015 to 2017, he was in a volunteer formation in the Kherson region. Together with the border guards, they stood and were on duty at the checkpoint. I don’t remember the name of this battalion, perhaps Asker. And from 2017 to 2019 Vitaly had a contract [с ВСУ], he was in the Donetsk region, in Avdiivka. The wording of the charge: for participation in an illegal bandit formation on the territory of the Russian Federation, ”says Marina Ryazanova.
