"I got lost helping the shepherds": in India, they reported the testimony of a Chinese corporal detained in Ladakh

A soldier of the People's Liberation Army of China was detained by Indian border guards in the Demchok area of ​​Ladakh. Recall that Ladakh is a disputed territory on the Indian-Chinese border, where a major clash between the Indian and Chinese military took place a few months ago.


The Indian press, citing sources in the security forces, writes that the Chinese corporal Wang Ya Long ended up on Indian territory near the Chushul Moldo frontier post.

It is reported about the testimony that the Chinese corporal gave after the arrest to the Indian border guards. According to Wang Ya Long, local shepherds approached his patrol unit "with a request to help find the missing yak." The corporal, searching for the animal, lost his way and ended up in the zone of Indian control.

From the testimony:

I got lost helping the shepherds and was out of our control.

The detention took place last week and senior Chinese military officials called on the Indian side to return the corporal to China.
Zhang Shuili, official representative of the PLA Western Command:

China hopes for the prudence of its Indian neighbors, that India will hand over to us the lost soldier.

Today it became known that India has returned the corporal to the Chinese side. In India, meanwhile, it was emphasized that the Chinese soldier was treated well.

It is important to emphasize that to date, in the disputed areas, the Indian and Chinese armies have concentrated a grouping with a total number of about 50 thousand troops. With the existing tension, any incident can lead to a new phase of the conflict.

      "local shepherds asked to help find the missing yak"
      Apparently help in the disappearance of the yak was considered a worthy circumstance.

          If the justification is true, then it characterizes the unity of the people and the army of China.

      As a rule, there are no such signs of the border in the mountains, often the borders pass along gorges and peaks.

          Apparently the Indian counterintelligence officers were guided by the presumption of innocence. The NKVD-FSB could shake the soul out of the corporal. At one time, diplomat Kapitsa noted the competence and mercy of the Chinese, although they kept Soviet servicemen in dungeons for six months before admitting that they had violated the border by mistake.

    Putin was the first to be asked about the presence of regular units of the Russian Armed Forces on the territory of Ukraine. He repeated the version he had already expressed that the paratroopers detained on August 26 near the village of Zerkalny, Donetsk region, got lost in the territory of the neighboring state. “In fact, it’s true, I’m serious now - i believe they got lost, because there is no marked border there, "Putin said, calling it a" technical issue. "


    The main thing is to believe ..))

    If not for the Indo-Chinese border conflict, they would not say a word about the corporal and the bull.

    A fellow student told me that he served in the Federal Border Service of the Russian Federation (PV), at the "reading of orders" a case of an emergency on the Kazakh-Russian border was announced:
    On the Nth number, the ensign of the N, N-border post, taking a machine gun, went to the adjacent territory in order to search for and use alcoholic beverages.
    In the evening, he was detained by the Kazakh police station in a state of alcoholic intoxication, transferred alongside at the border checkpoint.
    Having recovered from alcoholic intoxication, the warrant officer left the room at the checkpoint and crossed the border of the neighboring state. Was detained by a patrol ...
    The ensign's explanation: I went to look for a machine gun. The unofficial version is to get drunk.

    At the junction of the borders between Khakassia, Gorny Altai and Mongolia, cattle are often stolen from each other, while they celebrate the hijacking to celebrate, neighbors drive this cattle for themselves. This is how the cycle of livestock occurs in nature.

    Without any problems, accidentally get into the adjacent territory while on the border and without being accompanied by a border guard (which is completely out of the question here). The KSP (control strip) and engineering barriers are sometimes located several kilometers from the ruler (true boundary). Therefore, you can believe the Chinese corporal.

    Well, the usual thing is corporal Timurov. People needed help in finding the yak, do not refuse the same. War is war, and the yak will not stand still. winked
