18:25, 29 December 2016

Ukraine's Security Service published telephone conversations of former Ukrainian Armed Forces colonel Ivan Bezyazykov with pro-Russian militants. The recordings showcase the voice of Bezyazykov allegedly talking with the militants like they are colleagues.

Another extract displays the voice of the high ranking official of the so-called defense minister of the self-proclaimed republic, who tells the wife of Ivan Bezyazykov that her husband is safe and sound, that he will stay on the occupied territory voluntarily not as a captive prisoner.
