“According to the authors of this video, the footage was filmed near the village of Shirokino, and “all the separatists, traitors of Ukraine and militia fighters will be treated the same“, – “Cyberberkut” quoted the message from “Azov”.
The footage shows how several punishers tied their victim to the cross, stuck the cross into the ground, and set fire to the wooden structure.
“This will not add fear neither to us nor the Armed Forces of Novorossia: we have already experienced too much in this life! But after this hardly anyone will capture “Azov” members alive” – responded the hackers to the atrocities of the security forces.
The authenticity of the video is not yet reliably confirmed. No official statements were made by the authorities of DPR.
