Persons related to the assassination of Arsen Pavlov (callsign Motorola) were detained, the Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (the DPR) Aleksandr Zakharchenko claimed during his working visit to Rostov-on-Don on October 16, Donetsk News Agency informs.
“The DPR Ministry of Internal Affairs (DPR MIA) will soon make a statement as to the progress in the investigation of Pavlov’s violent death. Everyone involved in his death is detained, except for one person. The Head of the MIA of the Republic will make a statement in this regard,” Zakharchenko informed.
The commander of the Sparta battalion Pavlov, callsign Motorola, was killed in Donetsk in October 2016.
The DPR authorities consider Pavlov’s death to be a result of the terrorist attack organized by Ukrainian security services.
The representatives of the Republican law enforcement authorities stated earlier that they were suspecting the Misanthropic Division community in the organization of terrorist attacks on the territory of the Republic. The members of this organization took responsibility for Motorola’s murder.
