Major of the Armed Forces of Ukraine explained the decision to lay down arms and surrender to the Russian military in Donbas

There was information about the interrogation of Major of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ivan Sobolev, who surrendered without a fight near the village of Kalinovka, Volnovakha district. It is known that the Ukrainian officer had the position of deputy battalion commander of one of the brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to the latest information, he and a group of Ukrainian servicemen went to the Russian checkpoint near the village of Kalinovka (according to one of the versions by mistake), but did not join the battle, but decided to lay down weapon and surrender to Russian troops. Some other representatives of the battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also laid down their arms with him.

The Ukrainian major himself explained his decision by "unwillingness to continue the unnecessary bloodshed."

Major Sobolev of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said that he "sees no point in participating in hostilities on the side of the Nazi regime":

Therefore, he decided to surrender to the Russian troops.

Sobolev explained how, at his middle age, he was at the forefront. It turned out that he, having remained after the collapse of the USSR in Poltava, served for some time in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Then he retired. It was back in the late 90s. However, less than a year ago, he was called to the military enlistment office, from where, after more than 20 years of military retirement, they decided to return him to the service. He was sent to a brigade with a place of deployment in the city of Vladimir Volynsky. And then he was transferred with a unit to the Donbass to participate in hostilities.

Now the Ukrainian officer says that he himself was not going to return to military service - he was no longer at that age, but he had no right to refuse mobilization.

Major Sobolev:

If there is an opportunity to save people's lives, it must be saved. Let the politicians decide this issue. I see no point in shedding blood for the Nazi regime. I am a pre-pensioner even in civilian life. I have a wife, children, grandchildren at home, and relatives live in Russia and Belarus.

    He didn't give up without a fight, he just came back... I hope. He also brought out as many people as he could. This is a good move.

        Well, it’s somehow tearful and not very confident .. * 8 years means glory shouted and shot clearly, and then suddenly his eyes opened and his eyes lowered straight, the bastard Bandera supposedly didn’t shoot me for sho (and my cheeks almost burst from Amer’s stew ... ? Oh well ..

          The article is very short, but you could not master it either. He, a pensioner, was pulled out of his civilian life less than a year ago, and he was sent to serve not at all in the Donbass. And he was transferred to the Donbass - he surrendered, did not fight.
          Another question is that maybe he is lying, well, these competent comrades will figure it out

          In fact, he had already been on a military pension for 20 years.

          and brought some of his colleagues with him into Russian captivity.
          This is, in its own way, a positive civic position at his age. So what is next every day there will be more and more such APU officers in Ukraine as people, who actually saw the light of day at the end of a fetid black underground tunnel in search of a saving way out of them.

                All right. The only question is that in the army they retire at 45, if he is a 20-year-old pensioner, then he is 65, and he somehow does not look like a sixty-five year old. This is what caused me doubt, and therefore I wrote that the competent authorities need to deal with it

                At first he served in the SA, where he was shod and fed by the entire Soviet Motherland, saving on everything, after the collapse of the Union, he served in the Armed Forces of Ukraine (where he was again dressed and shod, not like before, but still better than in civilian life) remained to live in Ukraine, where he received a military pension, which is many times more civil .... and when the war came to his house, he stupidly surrendered to the enemy of his state .... moreover, in the position of deputy. com. bata bringing his subordinates prisoner with weapons .....
                He is a traitor with all the consequences, but everyone understands with him, but it is necessary to interrogate those with whom he surrendered with prejudice, among those who surrendered there can be anyone, an agent of the SBU, for example, or the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine ...

                  Calm down already. Otherwise, you yourself are no different from the same Nazis.
                  A fighter called forcibly came, surrendered peacefully, was seen in the national battalions as an accomplice too - why senseless bloodshed? Fights take not only the lives of enemies, but also their own. Try to put yourself in the place of an ordinary ordinary citizen of Ukraine, for whom people with machine guns and a summons came.
                  This approach of "cutting the surrendered" works for the enemy, or maybe you are an accomplice, they sometimes hide under the guise of "ardent patriots".
                  And do not take the Nazis prisoner, even if they themselves surrender. There is an SS tattoo, seen in crimes - here, "according to the laws of wartime," the conversation should be short.

                There are many things in nature. Need to know the facts:

                Surrendered to the Russian military Deputy Commander of the 14st Mechanized Battalion of the XNUMXth Brigade Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU), Major Ivan Sobolev said that the Nazi regime operates in Ukraine.
                “While moving from one deployment point to another, I went to a checkpoint of Russian troops in the Kalinovka area and decided not to shed the blood of people in vain for the existing Nazi-fascist regime in Ukraine, to surrender without armed resistance,” Sobolev said.

                The Russian man did not fight for the Nazis.

          Article: "The command post of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with dozens of senior officers was captured near Kiev"
          "The Russian military took control of a large command center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kiev and captured more than 60 senior officers.
          This was stated at a briefing in Moscow by the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Igor Konashenkov, the correspondent of PolitNavigator reports.
          According to Konashenkov, the Ukrainian servicemen who occupied the control center voluntarily surrendered at the sight of the Russian military.
          “In the village of Nikolaevka in the suburbs of Kyiv, Russian military personnel took control of a protected buried command post of the armed forces of Ukraine. 61 Ukrainian servicemen of the command post voluntarily surrendered, of which more than half are senior officers of the armed forces of Ukraine,” Konashenkov said.
          Note that Nikolaevka (Makarovskiy district) is located 34 kilometers from Kyiv, not far from the highway connecting Zhytomyr and Kyiv.
          So dashing trouble is the beginning.
          "... so as not to shed the blood of people in vain for the existing Nazi-fascist regime of Ukraine, .." - said Major Sobolev. And he is not the only one who thinks so. It's just hard to decide.

      In another article I saw another version of the biography.
      In the ATO since the age of 15, there were a few months left before retirement.
      "Became a military pensioner more than 20 years ago"?
      How old is he then now? Or in the 90s in Poltava, the length of service for a year was 3????
      What a mess....

            Very simple. By order of Zelensky, the service life of officers has been extended to 60 years.
            In Ukraine, even women with children are already registered, if there is a military registration specialty.

              Feel the difference between "under 60" and "over 60". Well, you all skipped math at school ... The minimum military length of service is 20 years. Let's say he retired at 99, even taking into account the experience of the school, he was 38. 23 years have passed. He is 61 at best.

          By the age of 60, the human brain (i.e., all the necessary skills have practically disappeared) is not able to make quick and informed decisions both on the basis of experience (which is obtained by the age of 30-35) and professional knowledge (which is 22 -25 years).
          The most active and efficient age is from 35 to 55.
          Next - to the scrap. To the cottage. Plant flowers, watch grandchildren.
          No matter how sad it was.

    People don't want to expose their heads to bullets. Unless, of course, the stoned Natsiks who gathered around the DLNR. It's just a complete cleanup. And then all these peace-loving laws where they will put some time in jail and again it's great.
    They took Kherson. They show the building of the SBU, do you seriously believe that everyone fled from there in such a hasty manner that they threw all the papers, personal files on the tables in the offices, prudently left the keys in the safes? And they didn't destroy anything. Yes, they had so much time they could completely burn the building. But ours received a lot of documents with an evidence base about the actions of the Nazis, their names, photos, nicknames, lists of agents, caches. The work of the relevant authorities has been greatly facilitated.
    Tired of the people of the power of the Nazis.
