“The enemy is the enemy and killers of the enemy was doing what it should. Questions you need to ask those who have to ensure that the territory of the republics didn’t happen,” – said the newspaper VIEW fighter BCH, publicist Paul Kucherov (call “Shakespeare”).
The source recalled that last week in the republics of Donbass there have been three terrorist attack. In particular, it is referred to the assassination of Colonel Anashchenko, one of the commanders of the militia, in fact, defense Minister of the LPR, the explosion in the area of the Motel (at the exit to the town) on the evening of 2 February, and finally – the murder of Givi. “Sabotage, carried out with fantastic efficiency” – he described the murder Kucherov.

Any answers to these questions our services counterintelligence and security were not given, and after the murder of Motorola, guess and do not give after the murder of Givi. But conclusions should be made. But whether or not, life will show”, – said the volunteer.

A kind of “reward” is the inclusion of Motorola and Givi in the sanctions list of the European Union.
Colonel Arsen Pavlov died in October last year as a result of a bomb explosion, after which the Thick vowed to avenge the murder of colleague and friend.
Then the threats Ukrainian radicals began to arrive, and the address of Givi. “I read the comments that fellow Ukrainians convey greetings to me. I’m not afraid of anything, – said the commander. I have nothing to lose. I know I’m doing the right thing. I’ve been fighting for their land and free Republic.”
