Ukrainian Special Services performed a special operation to kidnap the former Air Defense Commander of the armed forces of the DPR, Vladimir Tsemakh, in the city of Snezhnoe on the territory of the DPR, Russian BBC Service reported on July 4th citing the lawyer and the daughter of the kidnapped man.
According to Kiev attorney Roman Gontarev, Vladimir Tsemakh was abducted by Kiev’s Special Services from his apartment in the city of Snezhnoye on June 27. After that he was transferred in an unknown direction through the contact line to the territory controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. On June 28, he was taken to the city of Kiev, and the next day, the Shevchenkovsky district court in the city of Kiev made a decision to arrest him for two months. Tsemakh was charged in accordance with Article 258-3 Part 1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine “Creating a terrorist group or a terrorist organization.” In case of conviction, the ex-commander of the DPR’s Air Defense Service can be charged with eight to fifteen years in prison.
Vladimir Tsemakh’s daughter Maria believes that her father was detained due to his position in 2014 as the head of Air Defense in the city of Snezhnoe. The Malaysian Boeing was shot down not far from this city.
“They will now try to frame him for the Boeing case. But he became head of Air Defense in October 2014. He just was the only specialist of this kind. At the time when the Boeing was shot down, he was not a key figure – an ordinary military man, he was just serving on duty on a checkpoint. He went out to fight, like all supporters of a peaceful life for our land,” Maria said to the Russian BBC Service.
The Malaysian Boeing-777 (flight MH-17) crashed on July 17, 2014 in the sky over the Donetsk People’s Republic near the city of Donetsk. As a result of the crash, 298 people were killed. Western countries accused Russia of involvement in the tragedy, pointing out that the aircraft was shot down by a ground-to-air missile from a Buk Air Defense Missile System. Moscow has denied these accusations.
