The Russian FSB claimed that it detained a member of the terrorist organization “Islamic State” (ISIS) that prepared the assassination of one of the “commanders of the Donetsk People’s Republic” (DPR) on the assignment of the SBU as TASS reported.
It is noted that on September 9, at the territory of Smolensk Oblast, the Russian FSB detained Medzhid Magamedov of 1988-year-of-birth who is a member of the terrorist organization “Islamic State”.
“Magamedov planned the assassination of one of the leaders of the militia of the self-proclaimed DPR on the assignment of the Security Service of Ukraine and leaders of the Right Sector,” the message said.
According to TASS, the detainee said the Russian enforcers that the Ukrainian special services cooperate with the ISIS militants to organize the terrorist acts in Russia and eliminate the heads of the so-called Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics supported by Russia.
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".
