Militants’ commander Motorola killed in occupied Donetsk
Militants and SBU confirm information
“According to preliminary data, a homemade explosive went off in an elevator of the house where Arsen Pavlov lived. “Motorola” was in the epicenter of the blast and was fatally injured,” – the source says.
It is also reported that a plan of capture of the suspects is announced in the “republic”.
The “republic’s defence ministry” confirms the death of Arsen Pavlov (“Motorola”).
“According to the preliminary data, “Motorola” died in the result of a terror activity of the “Ukrainian sabotage-reconnaissance group”. An explosive device detonated remotely,” – the militants’ defence institution reports.
Ukraine’s Security Service, the SBU, confirmed the fact that DPR militant was killed. Yuriy Tandyt, counselor of head of the SBU, said this in his commentary to 112 Ukraine TV channel.
‘I can confirm this information which is now spread by the media – Arsen Pavlov was killed. The man who committed crimes against Ukraine’s integrity and was in fact wanted… he was killed tonight in a residential house,’ he said.
In 2015, Ukraine turned to the Interpol asking to put Motorola on the wanted list; the agency refused.
Arsen Pavlov, known as Motorola, came to the occupied Donbas as chairman of the illegal armed unit ‘Sparta’. Previously, he claimed to have executed 15 POWs, the soldiers of Ukraine’s armed forces. Amnesty International urged to investigate the murders that he confirmed to have committed.
