Around 100 women, including the soldiers’ mothers, activists of the
Zaporizhia people’s parliament, and women’s self-defense forces,
gathered near the military unit on Thursday evening, an Interfax-Ukraine
correspondent has reported.

The soldiers’ mothers were accompanied by lawyers, who told reporters
they “will defend the soldiers in a Zaporizhia district court, where a
decision on their detention will be made in the near future because the
Zaporizhia military prosecutor’s office has opened a criminal case
against them based on Part 3 of Article 409 of the Ukrainian Criminal
Code (refusal of military service in combat conditions).

The lawyers said their clients do not consider themselves defects,
are walking freely on the territory of the Zaporizhia military unit and
have refused to leave there before the hearing.
