MOSCOW, May 19. /TASS/. Russian bikers’ club Night Wolves will conduct its own investigation over an embezzlement case in which, according to the Ukrainian Security Service, the club’s leader, Alexander The Surgeon Zaldostanov, is a suspect, as follows from Zaldostanov’s own statement to TASS.
The National Security Service of Ukraine on May 19 opened a criminal case over Zaldostanov on terrorism charges. It claims that in cooperation with the management of the financial company Forex Trend Zaldostanov "misappropriated cash assets of citizens of Ukraine, Russia and the CIS countries." After that he allegedly used the money to finance the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics, the Ukrainian Security Service claims.
Zaldostanov emphatically dismissed the charges.
"They could’ve just as easily accused me of financing Batu Khan’s genocide of Ukraine. Such accusations merely prove Kiev’s imbecility," Zaldostanov said.
He claims that in the Kiev-controlled territories "the function of suppressing dissent, kidnapping people, intimidating the population, and eliminating opponents have been officially handed over to the Security Service of Ukraine."
"For calls for Remembrance and for celebrating the Great Victory the Ukrainian Security Service trumps up criminal charges, hoping to feel secure behind such frauds. The frauds won’t help. Retribution is in store for them," Zaldostanov said, adding that "bikers will take the investigation of the case of terrorism financing in Ukraine in their own hands."
This is not the first instance of the Ukrainian Security Service launching criminal cases over Russian citizens on charges of "complicity in terrorist activities." The security service has put on its wanted lists all musicians, actors and performing artists who have toured Donbas territories beyond Kiev’s control.
