As it was reported earlier, the so-called "DPR" high-ranked commander, Mikhail Tolstykh, a.k.a Givi was killed at 6.12 a.m. Kyiv time, in what they claim to be a ‘terrorist attack by Ukraine’.

Since the beginning of the Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine Givi led the armed unit ‘Somalia’, which fought on the side of pro-Kremlin militants. In particular, he was among the separatists who mocked and tortured the Ukrainian defenders of Donetsk airport, some of which were forced to surrender and thus became POWs.
