Leader of the "DPR" Alexander Zakharchenko appointed Ivan Prikhodko, who previously directed the "administration" of Kuibyshev district of Donetsk, on the position of acting head of the occupation "city administration" of Gorlovka. Prikhodko himself posted the corresponding "decree" on his Facebook page.
Prior to the "Russian Spring" Ivan Prikhodko was deputy chairman of the Voroshylov District Council of Donetsk.
Earlier odious Stanislav Kim "ruled" in occupied Gorlovka, he became widely known for his bizarre statements. In particular, Kim declared himself "Commander-in-Chief of the USSR" and recorded a video message to the ATO forces with the requirement to raise red flags.
