Today, March 10th, two significant announcement have come out of Lugansk pertaining to Ukrainian terrorist operations in general and the assassinations of commanders Anashchenko and Givi in particular.
Igor Kornet, the Minister of Internal Affairs of the Lugansk People’s Republic, officially stated that the persons (no number is given) involved in the assassination of People’s Militia commander Oleg Anashchenko on February 4th have been arrested on the territory of the LPR. Kornet also confirmed that the suspects were servicemen of the Ukrainian army. 
“All of them are servicemen of the special forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces who were deployed to Lugansk as part of saboteur-terrorist groups to commit terrorist acts on the orders of the Security Service of Ukraine. They are now being interrogated,” Kornet announced. 
The minister added that two weapons and ammunition caches, plus an explosive device, were uncovered by police during the investigation. Kornet stressed the significance of this discovery: “This stock and the type of weapons and equipment therein prove that the terrorist act committed by those now arrested is far from the only act of intimidation planned by Ukrainian special forces on the territory of the free republics.” 
Kornet’s statement on the Anashchenko case was immediately followed by a press statement of the LPR’s Minister of State Security, Leonid Pasechnik. According to Pasechnik, the ministry has discovered a special department within the Security Service of Ukraine, headed by Colonel Anatoly Sandursky, codenamed “Hutor”, which directly engages in organizing sabotage and terrorist activities in the people’s republics and the Russian Federation.
According to Pasechnik, Givi’s assassins were servicemen of the 8th special forces regiment of the Ukrainian Armed Forces under the command of Colonel Oleg Nechaev and the 8th regiment’s intelligence chief, Major Pavel Balov, codenamed “Kedr,” who is stationed in the city of Khmelnitsky in Ukraine. This specific unit is part of the larger terrorist operations division under investigation by Lugansk’s security forces.
“These people bear direct responsibility for this crime [the assassination of Givi] and other crimes committed in the LPR, DPR, and Russian Federation, for example in Crimea,” the LPR’s security minister emphasized.

 

Pasechnik added that at the present moment a detachment of the above-mentioned regiment numbering 120-150 troops is located in Starobelsk not far from Lugansk. The unit has been estimated to be divided into four saboteur-reconnaissance groups numbering 12 to 17 men each.

The commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s Somali battalion, Mikhail Tolstykh, famous as Givi, has been killed in a terrorist attack in Donetsk, the Ministry of Defense of the DPR has reported. 

“Regrettably, we can confirm this fact,” the DPR’s military spokesman, Eduard Basurin, has told journalists.

 
The terrorist attack took place at around 6:00 A.M. Givi was reportedly killed in his office by a Shmel flamethrower. “The death of this man was beneficial to Ukrainian special forces,” the DPR command commented.
Employees of the Ministry for Emergency Situations are working at the scene.
 

 

 
According to a defense ministry official, “This is a continuation of the terrorist war begun by the Kiev government against the people of Donbass. An investigative team is working at the site of the terrorist attack.”

The ministry also added that security measures have been stepped up in the DPR and residents are urged to remain calm. “We know what kind of people these are. We will find them and they will be punished to the full extent of wartime laws,” the DPR’s prosecutor stated, also confirming that the terrorist attack was the work of a Ukrainian sabotage-reconnaissance group.
Colonel Mikhail Tolstykh, a.k.a. Givi, was born in Ilovaysk on July 19th, 1980. Givi chose his nickname while serving in the Ukrainian Army. After the coup d’etat in Ukraine in 2014, Tolstykh became one of the activists of the movement for self-determination for the country’s eastern regions. 
When Ukrainian troops began their military operation against the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, Givi was promoted to commander and fought in the battles of Slavyansk, Ilovaysk, as well the Donetsk Airport. Numerous assassination attempts were made on Givi over the course of the war. Givi received the Order of Hero of the DPR, two St. George Crosses, and a “For Defending Slavyansk” medal.
In October 2016, Givi’s close comrade-in-arms and militia commander Arsen Pavlov, a.k.a Motorola, was also killed in Donetsk as a result of a terrorist attack. 
Givi’s assassination is the second high-profile attack over the past week in the context of the overall escalation of the situation in Donbass. On February 4th, the commander of the Lugansk People’s Militia, Oleg Anashchenko, was killed in Lugansk, which was also identified as a Ukrainian terrorist attack.
