The creator of the Vostok battalion Alexander Khodakovsky promises to take hard measures against the enemies of the "republic". He wrote this in a social network, commenting on the information that the leader of the "DNR" Alexander Zakharchenko intends to extend his term of government through changes to the "constitution" and get rid of all those who disagree with such a decision.
Khodakovsky, who is ready to compete for the post of the "republic’s head", said that he does not give up his ambitions and promises that in case of coming to power he will pursue a no-nonsense policy.
"You do not know me well... A person who is not capable of breaking the system would not fight against the prevailing enemy forces in a war with unpredictable results. It is here I'm a blogger preparing a coup, as Zakharchenko's close friends say, but in real life I can hang anyone and take them to the front line. Even Gubarev fears Khodakovsky's arrival with his maniacs, as he put it. You cannot cash in on blood and that's that", - he wrote.
The comments to the post prove that this is not an irony, but an articulation of his life position: "Alexander, thank you for your position". "We all should be strong and have faith". "Take care of yourself, there is nobody like you".
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". 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.
