A Russian author, Zakhar Prilepin, has stated on his social media that he ran into Igor Plotnitsky in Moscow airport – the former head of the Lugansk People’s Republic. It is not yet confirmed whether he was ousted or has travelled to Russia voluntarily, and what for.
According to Prilepin, Plotnitsky arrived from Rostov-on-Don by plane.
“Igor Plotnitsky flew to Moscow from Rostov on an ordinary commercial flight. He’s just arrived – in economy class, a quiet man without protection. He was alone.
At Moscow’s Sheremetyevo, two operatives who were waiting, soon followed after him.
With a small bag and a suit on a hanger, everything required for a new life.” – wrote Prilepin.
