“Young guys, who defended their mothers, out by fate and prosecutors are on the dock and most need protection themselves. Rather than to reward the guys as heroes, they are accused of desertion. The soldiers were thrown by commanders to their fate. Without ammunition and food they had to save their lives. After receiving an order from the commander to surrender their weapons and flee, the guys found themselves on the territory of Russian Federation. Refusing to fight with the enemy, they were sent to Ukraine, and here they are accused of desertion”, – reported Viktor Vasylyuk, the lawyer who represents three mothers of soldiers.
“Mothers of three soldiers of the aforementioned teams applied to our social program “Public Lawyer”, which Mykola Katerynchuk founded in 2004. After signing the relevant documents I immediately came to the court to defend their rights and the rights of the soldiers. I note the high professionalism of judges, who understand the situation and render fair decisions”, – said Victor Vasylyuk. – “I think that they all will get fired “.
“The prosecutors behave very inadequately. Without any reason, they accused the guys in general terms. Mothers of the soldiers and citizens of Zaporizhzhya demonstrated amazing unity. We are waiting for response from the President and the Prosecutor General Office, otherwise the next Maydan will start from the riot of angry mothers!”, – said the lawyer.
