Alexander Khodakovsky, the creator of the terrorist Vostok Battalion has told in high dudgeon that the command of the so-called army of the "DNR" refuses to recognize the merits of militiamen who had initiated the armed conflict in the Donbass in 2014. He wrote about this in social networks.
"Donbass reminds me of a wounded soldier who was given first aid, stopped heavy bleeding, put bandages on, but did not yet be evacuated… One thing worries: without qualified medical care, dramatic wounds can start to fester, and things can go as bad as it was in 2014, when more than half of our territory was amputated without timely intervention. Territorial amputation does not threaten us today, but we have something to lose except the territory. For example, when the newly appointed unit commander announces to all on the first forming that we do not need heroes of 2014, it means that something has already started to be rejected in the body", - the militant wrote.
Alexander Khodakovsky is a former employee of the SBU, he betrayed the oath and from the first days of the Russian hybrid war against Ukraine became one of the leaders of the Donbass terrorists. He created and led the Vostok Battalion. Currently, he is moved away from all official posts in the "DPR". Now he is in the confrontation with the so-called "head of the republic" Alexander Zakharchenko. He stands for an idea of Donbass accession to Russia, but his approach to this matter does not find understanding in the Russian Federation.
