Militia commander Mikhail Tolstykh, known by his frontline pseudonym Givi, has commented on the death of his friend and colleague Arsen Pavlov, a.k.a., Motorola. In Givi’s words, what happened two nights ago is an “international crime” and those who committed it will have to answer for everything.
“Whoever did this will pay. All of Ukraine. We will take every city. I will level them to the ground for my friend. I know that Arsen will always be with us,” Givi said.
Arsen Motorola Pavlov was killed on Sunday night in Donetsk. This commander of Sparta battalion was blown up in the lift in his own home. The device, with an explosive capacity of 1.5 kg, was set by Ukrainian saboteurs. The homemade bomb was attached to the rope hoist and exploded at the time that Motorola entered the elevator. As a result of this terrorist attack, Pavlov was fatally wounded.
Along with Motorola, his guard was killed and several people were seriously wounded.
The republic is now putting all forces in action to apprehend the criminals. Authorities hope that they will not be able to escape the city before the interception plan.
Several hours after the incident, Ukrainian nationalists claimed responsibility for the high-profile murder. They posted a video online in which they reported that the terrorist attack was their handiwork. Moreover, the criminals promised that they would not stop with Motorola, and that the next in line are the leaders of the LPR and DPR.
