Polish border guards say they have detained a 25-year-old Austrian national suspected of involvement in armed conflict in eastern Ukraine.
The man, detained at a Polish-Ukrainian border crossing in Dorohusk, is suspected of killing wounded people and prisoners in his role as “a member of a fighting group,” border guards told Poland’s PAP news agency on Sunday.
Wanted by the Austrian justice system, the man was stopped on Friday night at the Dorohusk crossing when he attempted to leave Poland by road, according to Polish border guards.
Border guard spokesman Dariusz Sienicki told PAP that the man “faces proceedings for extradition to Austria.” (str/pk)
