Russia's FSB is ready to assist in the "investigation" of the murder of the Head of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Alexander Zakharchenko and sent its officers to Donbas. Sergey Beseda, the Head of the Intelligence and International Relations Service of the Russian FSB claimed this as Interfax reported.
"The specialists (FSB) are already working there," he noted.
Beseda noted that the Ukrainian special services are involved in the murder of Zakharchenko.
Reportedly, on August 31, as a result of the explosion in the restaurant in the downtown of Donetsk, head of so-called “DNR” Aleksandr Zakharchenko died. The Russian mass media reported that Oleksandr Timofeyev, so-called "minister of revenue and duties" of so-called "DNR" has also died. The so-called “law enforcers” of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic stated that they detained “Ukrainian saboteurs” who are presumably involved in the assassination of Zakharchenko. Although, SBU hasn’t approved the information.
ORDO, Separate district of Donetsk region, suspects one of the guards of Zakharchenko in his death. At the same time, the Russian MFA accused "Kyiv regime" in the death of Zakharchenko. It was reported on the closure of all crossing checkpoints along the Inter-Entity Boundary Line because of the incident. Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences over the murder of Zakharchenko.
On September 2, Zakharchenko was buried in Donetsk next to pro-Russian militants "Givi" and "Motorola".
