Those who organized the assassination of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) leader Aleksandr Zakharchenko have been identified, a DPR security service official said on the air of the Vesti Nedeli program on June 16.
According to the DPR security service official, the Second Department of the Fifth Directorate of the Ukrainian Security Service (Russian: SBU) counterintelligence is responsible for operations in the DPR. The officials of this department, who are “involved in crimes committed in Donbass,” are known to the services of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
The official said that the security services of the Donetsk and the Lugansk People’s Republics “know the names, family status, and residence addresses” of the SBU officials involved in terrorist attacks in the Republics.
Aleksandr Zakharchenko, who was elected as the DPR leader in the November 2014 elections, was killed by an explosion organized by the SBU on the last day of the summer of 2018.
