DONETSK, June 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Law enforcement structures of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) consider the murder of one of the aides of DPR Supreme Council Chairman a terrorist act, the republic’s premier, Alexander Borodai has said.
“Our law enforcement agencies believe that the murder of Denis Pushilin’s aide, Maxim Petrukhin, was a terrorist act. It was aimed against Pushilin himself and not against his aide,” he told a news briefing on Saturday.
“A mistake could be made because he [Maxim Petrukhin] resembled Denis [Pushilin],” Borodai said.
Pushilin said, “Today my aide has been killed. He dealt with humanitarian issues. It is specialists that committed the murder. I rule out that this was hooliganism.”
DPR Supreme Council deputy Maxim Petrushin, 30, was killed in downtown Donetsk on June 7. He was married with two children.
“Denis Pushilin’s aide, Maxim, drove a car that had been attacked with a machine gun fire,” the DPR press service said.
Pushilin was inside the administrative building, the press service said.
