“Police of Donetsk regions has the information that the terrorist Mikhail Tolstyh, called Givi, was killed this morning. Our sources, located there, saw how it happened. I can tell you that an explosion really happened where the terrorist was at that moment, he died. The police group of the so-called DNR is working on the site, the venue is encircled currently. No other information is available at the moment,” said Abroskin.
According to him, the search of the citizens and automobile vehicles is underway, the main strategic roads are blocked in Donetsk at the moment.
"I suppose the terrorists have choses their way, that’s why this is a logical end. They have disaffection to each other, they redivide spheres of influence and businesses left there,” the head of the regional police believes.
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.
