DONETSK, September 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Prosecutors in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) put the commander of the Donbass punitive battalion, Semyon Semyonchenko, on a police wanted list on Monday.
The Donbass battalion, a voluntary armed unit, was set up in April this year to carry out a security operation against the supporters of the DPR.
Earlier this year, Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk awarded the Order of Bogdan Khemlnitsky III class to Semyonchenko who appeared at a briefing in Dnipropetrovsk, without wearing his balaclava for the first time, on Monday.
The order, however, did not prevent a failed operation in east Ukraine. “Moreover, it does not rid Semyonchenko of responsibility for his doings,” DPR prosecutors said.
