“Heroes don’t die. Arsen Pavlov – Motorola”
One of the saboteurs arrested in the Lugansk People’s Republic has named the killer of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s Sparta battalion commander, Arsen Pavlov, widely known by his codename “Motorola.”
This comes on the heels of the LPR Ministry of Internal Affairs and Ministry of State Security’s report on the arrest of servicemen from Ukraine’s 8th special forces regiment on suspicion of involvement in the assassination of People’s Militia commander Oleg Anashchenko and other terrorist attacks.
Ivan Deev, one of those arrested, confessed in a video clip presented to RIA Novosti by the LPR’s security ministry: “I can also confirm that when I was in Khmelnitsky in the 8th regiment of Ukraine’s special forces, I heard Major Balov, the chief of intelligence, boast that Motorola’s murder was his handiwork.”
According to Deev, Balov once said that he had previously undergone special training for rigging elevator explosives, i.e., the method by which Motorola was assassinated in October 2016.
