Former U.S. soldier arrested in Kharkov who helped the military in Ukraine

Hsmilitarycom: Russian sources said two former American soldiers who helped the military fight with Russia were arrested in the Kharkov region.

Two American soldiers were arrested while joining the Kyiv regime fighting against the Russian army. This was reported on June 15 by the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

The source said, during a Russian military operation, this was the first time a former US soldier had been captured by Russian forces.

The two former U.S. soldiers were named 39-year-old Alexander Druke and 27-year-old Andy Winh. They were taken prisoner by the Russian military last week when they fought with the Russian military as part of a group of ten.

One of the two captured former US soldiers told The Telegraph they were arrested after meeting with a much larger number of Russian troops during fighting last Thursday in the village of Izbitskoye.

On June 7, the trial began in Donetsk over foreign mercenaries accused of seizing and holding power by force, as well as undergoing training to carry out terrorist activities on the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR).

On June 9, the Supreme Court of the House of Representatives sentenced a foreign mercenary from Great Britain and a Moroccan citizen to death. The day before the verdict, the defendants pleaded guilty.

The official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, then, on June 10, pointed out that London's reaction to the verdict against the mercenaries was hysterical.

According to him, the Russian side informed the British Embassy in Moscow that the authorities of the DPR or LPR should be contacted for questions about the detainees. However, the British authorities did not show any initiative.

Russia resumed special operations to protect Donbass, which President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24. A few days earlier, the situation in the region had improved significantly as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military.

The authorities of the People's Republic of Donetsk and Lugansk announced the evacuation of the population to the Russian Federation, and also turned for help to Moscow. On February 21, Putin signed a decree recognizing the independence of the DNR and LNR.
