Ukrainian security forces do not allow their colleagues to surrender, there are barrage detachments, said the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov.
He said that in the area of Novomikhailovka in the Donetsk People's Republic, after fire preparations for the offensive of Russian troops, more than 30 servicemen of the 25th battalion of the 54th mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who were at a strong point in the area of the Zveroferma, decided to surrender.
They turned on the radio to the Russian command, asked to cease fire and provide a corridor for the exit. At about 22:00, the Ukrainian military with white flags began to advance towards the Russian positions.
“At that moment, a detachment of Ukrainian nationalists, who arrived at the stronghold on armored vehicles, opened crossfire at the servicemen of the 54th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the back. As a result of this shooting, 32 Ukrainian servicemen were fatally wounded and killed,” Konashenkov continued.
He noted that in recent weeks, such incidents have become more frequent.
As the lieutenant general emphasized, such facts clearly show that the Kyiv regime, against the backdrop of ever new military failures and demoralization in the troops, is trying to stop the surrender of its military personnel by punitive actions of detachments.
