The former police officer of the Russian Federation addressed the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) and asked to let him serve in territorial defense to protect Ukraine from the Russian invaders.
This was reported by the SSU press center.
A video has been published on the SSU website featuring the former police officer, who served in the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for 15 years, tearing apart his passport, military service veteran's ID card and military ID.
He said that he wanted to fight for Ukraine because here, he has a wife and a new life, which started when he moved to our country last year.
"Of course, without a complete set of inspections, no one will allow him to join the territorial defense. But if his intentions are sincere - he deserves respect!" - emphasized the SSU.
The Russian Federation’s military invasion into Ukraine has continued since the morning of 24 February 2022. Russian troops are targeting key military and civilian infrastructure, destroying airfields, military units, oil depots, gas stations, churches, schools and hospitals.
The shelling of residential areas is being carried out with artillery, Light Artillery Rocket Systems, and ballistic missiles. Convoys of Russian military armored vehicles are trying to surround Kyiv and several regional centers near the Russian border.
The Russians have called the war in Ukraine a "special operation" and, according to the SSU, planned to finish it in three days. During the full-scale invasion, the aggressor has to date lost about 10,000 troops. At the same time, Russia still refuses to take away the bodies of its fallen soldiers.
