ROSTOV-ON-DON, May 19. /TASS/. The Rostov-on-Don court arrested Denis Muryga - deputy commander of a unit that was included in Ukraine’s Aidar nationalist battalion - for two months, a source in law enforcement agencies told TASS.
According to the video footage of his questioning obtained by TASS, Muryga was born in Alushta, Crimea. In January 2015, he joined the Aidar battalion. The man adhered to radical right views, based on Russophobia and idea of Ukrainian supremacy.
Muryga is being suspected of detonation of a bridge in Lugansk People’s Republic, which killed People’s Militia sentries. According to Muryga, the event took place in March 2015. The order was given by Igor Radchenko, commander of the fire support company.
Serving as a deputy commander of the Aidar battalion unit in Lisichansk, Muryga supervised fulfillment of superiors’ orders. He was detained in April during an attempt to enter Russia as a refugee.
In Russia, Muryga is being suspected of "participation in a militia in a foreign state, not covered by that state’s law, with a purpose that contradicts Russia’s interests" (part 2 of Article 208 of Russian Criminal Code), the court press office said.
