“The leader of the Ukrainian saboteurs” Vladimir Serdyuk suggested that his colleague Eugene gentry was able to go to the Crimea on their own initiative. In his view, everyone experiences the “syndrome of war”. The official history of the 37th battalion has also confirmed that its members were rather secret agents on the front line, and armed laborers.

The probable organizer of the diversionary attack on the Crimea in early August, according to the FSB, is the chief intelligence officer of the 37th battalion of the 56th brigade of the Main intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian defense Ministry captain Vladimir Serdyuk. Coordination of offensive operations he was involved in from the Kherson region, from there he planned their retreat to Ukraine. Under his command were 14 terrorists, including the commander of the reconnaissance platoon 37th battalion, Lieutenant Alex sandul and the officer Gur, Oleg Dmitrienko, believe the Russian security forces. This information they have received including thanks to the confessions of Eugene Panov, who, according to investigators, was to ensure the return of the spies home.
The reaction of the “leader” of the insurgents did not have long to wait. Saturday Serdyuk said that is valid until 30 September 2015, he served in the 37th battalion of the 56th brigade, but was not a scout, and a staff psychologist in the most conventional infantry units. According to him, in the army he discovered the “avatars” (enemy spies), designed the leaving part and just talked to people. Recall that in the USSR the post of psychologist in the army belonged to the instructor, in this regard, Serdyuk certainly disingenuous when he says he’s never been associated with special services.
However, he said that he knew Panova, Sandula and Dmitrienko. According to Serdyuk, the first gave testimony under torture, the second due to shrapnel wounds is not working hand, so he constantly walks the hospitals, and the third, as he himself, for 50 years, and hence the scout, he can not be. He also admitted that he is very worried because of the accusations against him and does not want to have to this story is irrelevant. According to him, before the war it was a small design-build firm, which almost collapsed during the year of service in the army, and now he’s trying to restore it.
“MK” has decided to ask Serdyuk, could the lords to go to the Crimea on their own initiative. “Eugene can’t comment. Just don’t know. Yes, talked on the phone occasionally, met at the battalion events. War syndrome does not pass instantly, the war sitting in my head for a long time, and everyone comes out of it on their own. Look hard logic have demobilized,” said he. However, he said that, according to him, sandul and her husband are in Ukraine. “We have a fellow called up” — said Serdyuk, but refused to tell whether they had some relationship to intelligence.
Meanwhile it is known that the 37th battalion appeared at the end of August 2014, his first of the 115 participants, 90 came from “self-Defense Zaporozhye region.” First and foremost, its software was involved in the administration of Zaporozhye region, as well as volunteers. To end 2014 the way the combat of the battalion ran through the Donetsk airport, Debaltsevo and Avdeevk. In these areas, the soldiers worked to protect the outposts and mining/demining activities. In early 2015 they first returned to Zaporizhia, and then sent in Shirokino to build fortifications. In may of the same year was created the 56th motorized brigade, which was responsible for the second line of defense anti-terrorist operation.
It should also be noted that, according to information from open sources, the 37th battalion of the 56th brigade hardly resemble the elite intelligence unit. In March 2016, the representative of the Ministry of defence DND Eduard Bacurin reported that the commanders of the brigade had planned an attempt on the Colonel of the SBU Igor Levadne, who arrived in ATO inspection. According to him, the officers had worried that the check they can go to jail for past crimes, so he decided to blow up a car inspector somewhere near Konstantinovka. Basurin said that revealed this information on purpose in order to then murder accused militias.
In early June 2016 at the disposal of the media were recording a telephone conversation one of the officers with the Deputy commander of the 56th brigade. One complained to the other by soldiers, who beat team composition, and required to send doctors and soldiers to give to the Tribunal as if this is not done, beaten the officer will shoot them all.
Much noise has also done the statement of the commander of the 56th brigade, Colonel Andriy Melnyk that his subordinates don’t need the help of charity organizations, as they have everything and need nothing. In response to the volunteers collecting humanitarian aid for the 37th battalion, said that soldiers are often forced to eat only one condensed milk, and when they get to stew in it instead of meat are veins, fat and wool. Moreover, they resent the relocation of the military base of the 37th battalion from the base in the village of Broad in the face in an abandoned part under the Takmak. Volunteers say that once upon a time this place was closed because the land was recognized as poisoned, and now there are no conditions for military service.
Meanwhile, in the case “Ukrainian saboteurs” there is another suspect. They became the Crimean Tatar Ridwan of Sulemanov who admitted laying the fake bomb at the airport of Simferopol, for which he was caught on July 30. According to him, it was necessary to distract the security forces from the Russian-Ukrainian border at the point of intersection of the saboteurs. However, during his interrogation of Sulaimanov said that live in Zaporozhye on the street Space, house 168, although this address does not exist. According to the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Refat Chubarov, Sulemanova arrested about 3 weeks ago, and in fact, he has long lived in a village near Simferopol. Confirmation of this information will mean that the Crimean Tatar did not have time to lay your fake. Nevertheless Sulemanov insists that the Gur of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine signed him in September of 2015 and promised to pay up to 6 thousand UAH per month, if he got a job in the airport “Belbek” or on the railway in Simferopol, to report to appear there military equipment.
