The direct executor of the resonant murder of the commander of the DPR militia Arseny Pavlov, known as Motorola, was the Latvian mercenary Mark Ozolinsh, recruited by the Security Service in Riga. This was reported to news agency “Nahnews” with reference to resonating data from social network, reports Ukraina.ru.

The blogger under the nickname skif1959 wrote on his LiveJournal page, on 18th October on the websites of the DPR there was supposedly information that the killer who prepared the explosives for killing Motorola and pressed the detonator button is Mark Ozolinsh from Latvia, working together with another unknown mercenary.

“There is little information on the killer-explosives expert at the moment. It is only known that the Latvian saboteur was deployed in the militia in the first half of 2016 and was recruited by the Security Service in Riga. Ozolinsh didn’t prove himself at the frontline, but was entering into people’s confidence, bribing the needed-by-him people using material help imported from Russia,” said the blogger.

It is worth noting that the last name of Ozolinsh did not appear in any of the reports of the DPR. The government of the People’s Republic said that they know the order-giver’s name, and the identity of the direct perpetrators will be established during the course of the investigation. Later, the head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko said that the murder of Arseny Pavlov was committed by the Security Service of Ukraine.

“Latvian fighters have a long tradition of involvement in conflicts where they are at war with Russia. Their snipers and bombers were well known in the first and second Chechen wars. Not only men but women from Latvia also went to fight in the enflamed region with the federal forces. Latvian mercenaries were distinguished by their unprecedented ruthlessness in the elimination of Russian soldiers, Chechen Wahhabis noted their special zeal, sometimes marvelling at what they could do in order to destroy the Russians,” stated skif1959 in the blog.

“The cyberteam of Donbass is asking residents of the Donetsk People’s Republic to provide assistance in the search for the perpetrator of the assassination of Arseniy Pavlov,” the post reads.
