An underground casino used as a recruiting center for “illegal armed formations” was discovered by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and police in Svetlodarsk. This has been reported by the SBU’s press center.
“Conspirators invited people dependent on alcohol and drugs to the casino which was disguised as an internet studio. After they had lost large sums of money, they were offered to pay off the debt by taking part in military hostiles on the side of the terrorists against Ukrainian units. In the case of a refusal, the recruiters threatened debtors with violence. Those who agreed to the proposal were transported at night by boat to temporarily occupied Gorlovka,” the report reads.
Rapid investigative operations are ongoing on prosecuting recruiters and the organizers of the gambling.
