Official Kiev falsified charges against Russians Alexander Alexandrov Evgeny Erofeev. This was in Fira NTV on Tuesday said byushi marine Pacific fleet and ex-soldier of the Ukrainian nationalist battalion «Azov» Alexei Filippov.
«They pulled out from among the prisoners of two Russian citizens, pressed on them, and they told me that are employees of the GRU. At
as Alexandrov, it was clear that the guy is scared, pumped up some
strange substances. Special forces soldier doesn’t act», said Filippov.
Recall that in April, the Russians and Alexander Yerofeyev was sentenced in Kiev to 14 years of imprisonment with confiscation of property on charges of terrorism, waging «aggressive war» and the actions that led to the death of a person.
A year earlier, Ukrainian law enforcers detained Russians in the Luhansk region, saying that they are employees of the Main intelligence Directorate of the General staff of the Russian Armed forces. In the defense Ministry, meanwhile, stressed that at the time of arrest, the Russians were not current members.
According to the channel, Filippov fought against the militias in a combat zone in the Donbass, and personally participated in the interrogation of Alexander and Yerofeyev. According to him, the whole operation against the Russians was organized by the SBU.
In the first months of stay on
Ukraine Filippov was in the ranks of the banned in Russia as extremist organization «Right
sector.» According to a former Russian officer, he came to
Ukraine in order to help the government fight the «terrorists.»
«Then I realized what actually do the security forces that obey
Kiev. And returned Home», — said the ex-fighter.
However, the Filippov’s participation in the fighting on the side of Ukrainian nationalists are already interested in the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation. Currently, investigators have closely studied the biography of the defector.
