LPR Detained Blogger “Edward Ned” Who Has Ties To “Aidar” and SBU

Translated by Ollie Richardson



In the Lugansk People’s Republic employees of the Ministry of State Security detained the blogger Eduard Nedelyaev, who on the Internet assigned himself the nickname Edward Ned.

Lugansk law enforcers suspect him of distributing extremist materials on social networks. In addition, the blogger is suspected of having links with the nationalist Ukrainian “Aidar” battalion and SBU.

During the searches that were carried out in Nedelyaev’s apartment, large amounts of cash were found, which, according to investigators, he intended to use to publish extremist propaganda on the Internet.

Currently Nedelyaev is charged with treason. Also, a criminal case was opened against him under two articles — “Espionage” and “inciting hatred or hostility, and humiliation of human dignity”.
