The fighter of ‘Somalia’ unit, one of the illegal armed formations of the pro-Kremlin militants in Donbas, said he was never involved in the murder of Givi, the unit’s commander.
Igor Myltsev, a.k.a French, was interviewed by Life.ru; during the conversation with reporter, he explained that the chat where he allegedly confirmed his involvement in the murder of Givi, actually doesn’t belong to him. According to him, his account at one of the Russian social networks was hacked in September 2016, and this was what Novaya Gazeta newspaper took as his acknowledgement.
The man stold Life.ru that the whole chat was made up by the SBU, Ukraine’s Security Service.
‘After Igor had lost access to his page, the hackers contacted him via his other account. They showed great interest in his old page and asked whether Igor wanted to get it back. Now, Igor uses his newer account, asking users to spam his old account, so that it would get blocked.
The man said he never met Givi in person and he had no involvement in his assassination – despite what was mentioned in the chat.
As 112 International reported, the leader of ‘Somalia’, the illegal armed unit fighting against the Ukrainian troops in Donbas, was killed on February 8 in his office in Donetsk.
