DONETSK, October 31 /TASS/. The Supreme Court of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has sentenced the organizer of attempted homicide of Alexander Zakharchenko, the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), to 14 years behind bars.
"Today, the Supreme Court passed a verdict on Maksim Teorenter, the organizer of an attempted homicide on the republic’s head, Alexander Zakharchenko," a source at the DPR Ministry of State Security told the Donetsk News Agency.
"He was sentenced to 14 years behind bars," the source stressed.
According to the agency, the convict is an agent of Ukraine’s Security Service who planted a bomb at the Artemida pistol club in Donetsk.
On April 28, the DPR Ministry of State Security thwarted a terror attack on the republic’s head, Alexander Zakharchenko. A group of saboteurs, comprising Ukrainian nationals, was arrested. They had crossed into the DPR from the Kiev-controlled territory and had brought a powerful explosive device with them. The Ministry of State Security established that the suspects had studied Zakharchenko’s itineraries and places of stay in advance and had planned to assassinate the DPR leader at the Donetsk-based Artemida pistol club.
