Militants of DPR and LPR who fled to Russia are being deported to Ukraine


Militants of DPR/LPR, seeking asylum in Russia, are being deported to Ukraine after the allowed period of staying in Russia expires.

It was reported by Russian newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets.

As the article says, the militants who fought in the Donbas “are being detained in the territory of the Russian Federation”.

“There are tens of them. In their homeland they are called “militants and terrorists”. They are wanted. All they did in Russia is violated the 90-day staying period. Now they are subjects to immediate deportation by the migration services. Everything is in accordance with the law. But to send them out of Russia right to the SBU is like sending them to death,” noted in the article.

The author talked to one of the LPR militants, 36-year-old Vladimir Veklich, a member of the terrorist group Prizrak (“Ghost” – RRT).

It was reported that Veklich with the call sign “Serb” commanded a mortar squad, and after being wounded in winter 2015 he decided to go to Russia for medical treatment. After considering his military documents, his stay in Russia was extended by 3 months. However, after he violated the allowed period of stay by a little more than 2 weeks, the court appointed Veklichev standard penalty of 5,000 rubles (about $80 – RRT), and deporting from the Russian Federation,

Petrogradsky district court found that Veklich not just blithely mixed up days, but “… willfully shied away from leaving the Russian Federation at the end of the authorized period of stay for a foreign citizen under the part 2 of Article 5 of the Federal law #115,” the article says.

28-year-old Vyacheslav Egorov got into the same situation. He fought in the DPR in the group Oplot, and is also facing deportation.
