Supreme Court Releases From Custody 3 Ex-Soldiers Of Aidar Battalion Convicted For Attacking Policeman, Case Sent For Repeat Consideration

The Supreme Court of Ukraine has terminated the verdict and released from custody three former soldiers of the Aidar volunteer battalion convicted for attacking a policeman.

The press service of the Aidar volunteer battalion announced this in a statement posted on its Facebook page, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The Supreme Court of Ukraine has made a decision to release from custody volunteers of the Aidar battalion Mykola Ahapov (Yama), Vadym Feschenko (Reks), and Roman Schurov (Speaker), who had served more than three years in the jail," reads the statement.
