Units of the so-called "Republican Guard of the DNR" were alerted to repel an alleged attack on them by the terrorist Vostok Battalion. This was written in social network by creator of the Vostok Alexander Khodakovsky.
According to him, recently, people of Alexander Zakharchenko organized several acts of provocation against him, the peak of which was mobilization of all illegal military formations, loyal to the "DNR" leader, to repel the attack of the Vostok.
"The story of visits to our addresses, leaflets that no one had seen and fake video message was not the culmination - it was the alert of the Republican Guard, the commanders of which were reported that the Vostok was going to attack them…. The guys were recalled from the leaves, the guard details were reinforced, all were put on standby…", - Khodakovsky wrote.
The militant also reported that the remnants of the Guard of Plotnitsky "about two hundred men strong" were redeployed from the occupied Luhansk region to Donetsk to fight the internal opposition in his person.
"As you understand, the task of this unit does not include fighting with the AFU", - he noted.
"It will be located in the city center and armed additionally in order to do what? To carry out the delicate tasks of the now new owner?", - Khodakovsky rhetorically asks.
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 "DNR".
