The CIS based organization, HellRaisers, home of the European based Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team, has announced changes in their roster.
After just the other week announcing the addition of the Spaniard
Christian 'loWel' Antoran from Moviestar Riders, now it's NoChance player, Zygimantas 'nukkye' Chmieliauskas.
In the past, nukkye has played under Kiril 'ANGE1' Karasiow's leadership as a stand-in for HellRaisers at the DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018. With this, the Kazakh, Abay 'HObbit' Khassenov will transfer listed as it seems that the leaders of the team are not happy with his performance.

"Today, we are announcing that Žygimantas “nukkye" Chmieliauskas, who used to play for NoChance, will become the fifth member of our team.
We competed together at DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018, and he joins the squad on a full-time basis.
We're sure that nukkye will be a strong addition to our team.
