The explosion which occurred at the Donetsk Republican Trauma Center was an assassination attempt on one of the battalion commanders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Arseniy Pavlov (Motorola), DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko has stated.
“This was an attempt on the reconnaissance battalion commander known by the call-sign Motorola. The attempt failed. I will openly say that I know Arseniy as a warrior, as a man, and believe me, there are plenty of other places where he could have been blown up if so desired, but doing this at a hospital where children are laying and civilians come is beyond all human understanding,” Zakarchenko is quoted as saying by Donetsk News Agency.
The explosion occurred on the morning of June 24th in the Kievsky district of Donetsk. There were no injuries, but the mortuary building and seven cars were damaged.
