The murder of infamous pro-Kremlin militant Arsen Pavlov, a.k.a. Motorola, could possibly lead to clean-ups inside the so-called ‘DPR’. Georgiy Tuka, Deputy Minister of the Temporarily Occupied Territories, said this in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel on Monday morning.
‘One could speculate a lot; but only perpetrators know the true answer. What happened is quite logical. Some four months ago, I said that the Novorossiya project is over. What we see now – I mean, the sequence of murders (among commanders of Russia-backed militants, - 112 International) is quite consistent with the general course of events. This death isn’t the first, and it’s not going to be the last one, either’, Tuka said.
According to him, the murder of ‘Motorola’ might be the reason of short-lived escalation of the conflict by the militants. ‘Most likely, certain clean-ups will take place inside the so-called ‘DPR’’, Tuka said.
