Over 100 Ukrainian troops surrender in Donetsk region - militia
DONETSK. Aug 30 (Interfax) - An encircled group of the Ukrainian military has surrendered weapons near the village of Starobeshevo south of Donetsk, according to senior militiamen operating in southeastern Ukraine.
"The Ukrainian military went out in the Starobeshevo area. More than a hundred people handed over their weapons to us and surrendered. They have been sent to places of detention and are being checked for involvement in war crimes. Those injured received medical aid," military sources in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic told Interfax on Saturday.
Preliminary reports suggest that this group of the Ukrainian troops has accepted the offer of voluntary arms surrender made by DPR prime minister Alexander Zakharchenko a day earlier.
