16 April 2014 06:56

  • Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has valid proof of the Russian special-ops troops being deployed on Ukrainian territory. Officers of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (GRU), based currently in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, directly coordinate insurgents, provide them with financial, material and technical support. Militants are also being coordinated via special communications equipment from the territory of the Russian Federation. For example:
    • Mr. Igor Strelkov a.k.a “Strelok”, identified as GRU staff, directly supervised the militant group on Ukrainian-Russian border on April 12-13, 2014. On April 13, in the vicinity of Slov’yansk this group conducted a ferocious and unprovoked attack on two vehicles with civilian license plates, killing one SBU officer and wounding three. During the Crimea crisis Mr. Strelkov worked as assistant on security issues to Sergey Aksionov, the puppet prime-minister of Crimea. In early April he was relocated for further special operations to continental Ukraine. On multiple occasions he visited Russia’s Rostov-na-Donu and Moscow for instructions.
    • On April 11,  2014, Ukrainian citizen Gontaryov, a leading pro-Russian separatist who participated, among other things in occupation of Donetsk Regional State Administration, dispatched an agent to Russia’s Consul-General. Point of discussion: support of Donetsk and Luhansk separatists.
    • On April 13, 2014, a Russian citizen supervised training and redisposition of armed group of 30militants from Luhansk to Donetsk region, who were instructed to provide armed resistance to Ukrainian law enforcement.
    • On April 13, 2014 a Russian citizen instructed separatists via phone to deploy defectors among local Ukrainian police to control administrative buildings in Luhansk, to set up checkpoints within city line, to prepare for proclaiming a “Luhansk Republic” and forming of a local parliament. Another Russian citizen instructed one of the separatist leaders who occupied the Regional Security Service in Luhansk to prepare for an emergency session of Luhansk Regional and City Councils.
    • Separatists held phone talks with Russian citizens regarding “a person who returned from Moscow headquarters”, “official” and “full Moscow support”, as well as plans of so-called “little green men” to appear in the respective regions on April 13,  2014.
    • On April 12,  2014 a phone conversation was intercepted regarding “a comrade from the Russian general who is here and will be here till the end, and he claims that in case of a shooting, Russian armed forces would enter Luhansk in 40 minutes or 1.5 hours”.
    • In Slov’yansk, a professional GRU mercenary was identified who had earlier participated in Georgian events in 2008.
  •   Two intelligence and raiding groups of GRU, currently based in Sevastopol, plan to move shortly to Odessa to coordinate occupation of local administrative buildings.
  •   Separatists who occupied administrative buildings in Donetsk region were armed with АК-100 guns – a model used exclusively by Russian army and special-ops; their ammunition, combat training and tactics are also typical for Russian army and special-ops.
    • As an example, the model of shoes worn by armed insurgents is one manufactured by Butex, Russian enterprise that supplied Russian security agencies and stopped production about 6 months ago.
  •   Over the last month, 10 Russian spies and raiders who operated in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, Odessa and Chernihiv regions were detained.
