MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s special services were behind the assassination of militia leaders of the self-proclaimed Donbass republics, former officer of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) Vasily Prozorov told a news conference in Moscow on Monday.
Prozorov denied the claims that many militia leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics had been killed in internal skirmishes. "Their killing was the work of Ukraine’s special services," he said. This effort is led by the SBU’s special unit.
According to him, the death of militia leaders Motorola and Givi is 100% an operation carried out by a special 5th department of the SBU and the Special Operations Forces, he emphasized.
Staff members of this unit undergo training under the direction of instructors from the United Kingdom and other countries. They specialize in terrorist attacks and guerilla movement, he said. "The Special Operations Forces are behind many acts of sabotage against the republics’ leadership."
The ex-SBU officer cited First Deputy Commander of the Special Operations Forces Col. Sergey Krovonos as saying that this unit had been behind high-profile murders. He even spoke about two potential targets nicknamed Korsa and Bagira.
Prozorov believes that the Ukrainian security services carry out all these crimes in Donbass because they have fascist and Nazi views.
Earlier in the day, former staff member of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) Vasily Prozorov revealed at a news conference in Moscow that he had provided assistance for Russia’s special services since April 2014. Prozorov confessed that he had made the decision to share data with Russia on the activity of Ukraine’s security services, in particular the Donbass operation, after the February 2014 coup d’etat in Ukraine.
