While the Kiev authorities are trying to convince the whole world that “Ukraine is tse Europe”, and the North Atlantic Alliance simply needs to quickly accept its ranks, in the conflict zone in Donbass, the Ukrainian military behave like terrorists. Another seizure by Ukrainian saboteurs of a serviceman of the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic took place just before the New Year.
As the official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR Ivan Filiponenko said, “the militants in the conflict zone again committed an act of aggression with the abduction of a serviceman of the People’s Militia of the LPR.” The incident took place on December 27. At the place of the abduction, traces of struggle and blood were found, which testifies to the use of physical force against the serviceman.
“In relation to the kidnapped soldier, physical and moral pressure is used, as well as prohibited medicines are used to force him to give false testimony and create an evidence base in order to justify the criminal actions of Ukrainian militants,” a source in the power structures of the LPR told MK.
The actions of the Ukrainian saboteurs completely repeat the two previous abductions: a soldier of the People’s Militia in November, and an observer from the LPR in the Joint Control and Coordination Center Andrei Kosyak in October. Both these facts and the new kidnapping, according to the LPR, are the result of the OSCE’s inaction and the lack of a proper response from the Mission’s leadership.
A veteran of the People’s Militia of the LPR Andrei Marochko told MK that the hostage could have been taken prisoner for the purpose of further blackmail.
“Now Ukraine really wants to have time in the outgoing year to hold one more negotiations as part of a contact group on security,” the officer shared his assumption in an interview with an MK correspondent. – Kiev announced this and is now actively throwing requests from the representatives of the republics in order to conduct these negotiations and determine for itself another fake “change.”
Our representatives took a clear position, indicating that only a constructive dialogue is possible, and no one needs chatting and a meeting for the sake of a meeting. So Ukraine has already started such methods. She captured another soldier of the People’s Militia for the purpose of blackmail so that our representatives would meet as part of a contact group and discuss some issues.
And the result is not particularly important to them. The main thing for them is to show the semblance of their work in order to report to the Western “masters” about the achievements and “constructs”. On the eve of the New Year holidays, Zelensky needs to say something positive, but there is nothing to boast about, because there is nothing positive in Ukraine now.
And it turns out that the so-called European state, which calls the republics of Donbass terrorists, itself disregards the norms of international humanitarian law and is fighting terrorist methods on the principle of ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation – MK ). Unfortunately, the world community is blind and deaf, but people who are able to adequately assess the situation understand perfectly well what is really happening and why this is all being done.
– What is known about the fate of the captured serviceman?
– A photograph was published in which the soldier’s face was covered with a “smile”. It is far from being an isolated case when the Ukrainian military hides the faces of prisoners in the photographs. Personally, I regard this as the fact that they are simply hiding the beatings of our serviceman. Now he is in active development of representatives of the security service of Ukraine, who “knock out” testimony from him. I think they will be published soon. For understanding: we have never allowed ourselves to use such methods in relation to the Ukrainian servicemen who were taken prisoner.
– What measures are being taken to release him?
– Our representative for the exchange of prisoners clarifies the information, collects the necessary package of documents, and I think this issue will be raised at the next meeting. But most likely this will happen next year.
