KIEV, May 24. /TASS/. Commander of the 4th police battalion of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) Alexei Mozgovoi was killed in a special mission of Ukraine’s Teni (Shadows) commandos, the detachment’s head Alexander Gladky said on Sunday.
He wrote in Facebook "we fled immediately."
Earlier, Mozgovoi had survived several attempts on his life. After the last attempt in late March, he said that it was a provocation aimed to destabilise the situation in the self-proclaimed republic.
In early April, the 4th battalion of territorial self-defence was set up on the basis of the Prizrak (Ghost) brigade, following a resolution on the LPR territorial defence signed by the republic’s leader Igor Plotnitsky on March 7, 2015.
Head of LPR Igor Plotnitsky said the murder was in the interests of Kiev, which, he said, instead of moving towards peace under the Minsk agreements, is trying to fail the political stability around the republics in Donbass.
