In Donetsk was killed by the DNR commander Arsen Pavlov
In Donetsk killed one of the militia commanders DND Arsene Pavlov, nicknamed "Motorola". He was killed by the bomb explosion in the East of Ukraine.
"Motorola" was killed Sunday in the explosion of a bomb planted in the hallway of the building where he lived, according to the self-proclaimed news service of the Donetsk national Republic. Pavlov created the battalion "Sparta" during the fighting in Eastern Ukraine. He and his militiamen were fighting against the Ukrainian military since the beginning of the crisis in the region, according to the press service of the DPR.
"This is a big loss for all of us," said Pushilin, the Chairman of the Council of the DPR. Pushilin called Pavlova a "hero" and accused of "Ukrainian sabotage-reconnaissance groups" for his death.
The security service of Ukraine has confirmed the death of Pavlova, according to the Agency UKRINFORM. Ukrainian army General Mykola Malomuzh said, the internal conflict between separatists may be due to his murder, according to UKRINFORM. Separatist authorities said that the investigation is in full swing. Ukraine is in a state of high alert as tension with Russia escalates.
Pavlov married his bride in 2014 - in the midst of the fighting in the East of Ukraine, wore the military uniform, while his bride was dressed in a white dress. Losses among the civilian population in the Eastern part of Ukraine - the highest since August 2015. Years of negotiations on peace in Eastern Ukraine brought little fruit. Tensions between separatists and government forces remains high and attacks from both sides occur on a daily basis.
Almost 10 thousand people died in the violence since the crisis began, according to the UN.
