‘Today, I have been asked a question, why do the representatives of the city administration in Mariupol and Berdyansk are in a camouflage suit in downtown. I gave a task to local chief enlistment officers to check the information, they reported that no one is in a suit. It means that someone is engaged in such work and giving people false information. If someone in the camouflage suit came to take away a cow or a car – remember, you always have police. Address the police, such bad people have to be arrested,’ Tymoshenko claimed.
