Border guards as part of the Defense Forces free not only the territory of Kharkiv Oblast from the invaders, but also local residents who were illegally detained by the Russian invaders.
It is reported press center State Border Service.
As it is noted, during the execution of tasks in Kupyansk, the border guards, according to the information of local residents, found five teenagers, aged from 15 to 17 years old, closed with hatches in one of the basement rooms.
“As it turned out, by the time of their release, four girls and a boy had been in the basement for 7 days. Teenagers, residents of Kupyanskyi, Izyumskyi and Chuguyivskyi districts, turned out to be students of the educational institution – future doctors. The freed girls and the boy said that the occupiers conducted filtering measures with them, after which they locked them in the basement without explaining the reasons. There was no limit to the gratitude of teenagers. It is hard to imagine what could have happened to the children if the Defense Forces of Ukraine had not de-occupied this territory”, – the message says.
Currently, competent law enforcement officers are working with the freed girls and boy, and border guards, in the Defense Forces, continue to protect Ukraine from Russian invaders.
