The former serviceman of the Donetsk People’s Republic Igor Myltsev in an exclusive interview to Life disproved his involvement in the murder of the “Somali” battalion commander Mikhail “Givi” Tolstykh.
The militiaman said that the correspondence presented by “Novaya Gazeta”, in which allegedly admits he staged an attempt to kill Givi, doesn’t belong to him. Igor explained that the page on a social network that served as the basis for the article was hacked by unknown persons in September, 2016.
As Igor, who was fighting under the call sign the Frantsuz, believes, this provocation was carried out by the SBU. When Igor’s access to his page was lost, the hackers contacted him through the second account. They wrote that his page is very interesting to them, and asked whether Igor wants it to be returned. Now on the page of his real account, Igor calls to spam his old page in order to block it.
Frantsuz explained that he never met Givi personally, and as was affirmed in the correspondence, he had no relationship with the “Somali” battalion.
As Igor Myltsev described, he stood up in defense of Donbass in 2014, and took part in the defense of Slavyansk. At the beginning of 2015 he was wounded and left the ranks of the DPR Armed Forces for health reasons. Now Igor is in the DPR and doesn’t even think to disappear from law enforcement agencies of the Republic.
Unfortunately many media outlets, as a quick way to gain viewership and clicks, decided to use the Novaya Gazeta story, simply because the paranoiac idea that he was “betrayed” by his own is far more “entertaining” than the “boring” narrative that it was the SBU. This behavior serves in the interests of the Kiev regime, and only helps to further empower the fifth column present in not only Donbass, but also in Russia. It should also be noted that “Novaya Gazeta” a fifth-column agitator newspaper, which uses most of its column space to discredit and undermine Vladimir Putin.
