The release of “Georgian Legion” from the 54th brigade of the Ukrainian armed forces in Donbass connected with gross errors of command of the Ukrainian security forces. This was stated by Deputy commander of the operational command of the self-proclaimed DND Eduard Bacurin.
“The actions of the Ukrainian command, cornered in a dead end, accompanied by a gross error,” – said Basurin. He cited multiple violations of the truce by the APU.
The last straw in the decision on withdrawal of the Georgians from the 54th brigade, he said, “was the fact of participation units in the attack on 19 December Novoluganskogo” controlled by Kiev. There, said Eduard Basurin, used incendiary munitions on civilian areas of the village to simulate the effects of fire “Grad”.
