Semenchenko plans to organize nationwide guerrilla movement

Semenchenko plans to organize nationwide guerrilla movement

Semen Semenchenko, commander of the Donbas Battalion, wrote on his FB page that they will open a Call Centre of the Civic Committee for the organization of a guerilla movement in Ukraine.

He said that there will be a general meeting of leaders from different oblasts (regions) and a press conference will be held after the first group of leaders has been formed. Semenchenko promised to provide instructors and guerrilla training camps.

“Our country is in danger! I appeal to everyone who loves Ukraine to unite and prepare for civil war. This is the only way to stop the horde, sweep it off the pages of history and into the fires of eternal damnation.” wrote Semenchenko.

He asks leaders of local self-defense units, paramilitary organizations, patriotic associations from all over Ukraine, and concerned citizens to contact the Call Centre.

“Let us unite, train combat engineers, bomb technicians, snipers and paramedics, form and assign subversive groups, and develop defense strategies for our cities and villages.” added the Donbas commander.

Semen Semenchenko asked the President of Ukraine, the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, the Prime Minister, heads of security and law enforcement institutions, and government officials to support his initiative.

“Don’t be afraid of panic! We are not a nation of alarmists. Be open and start preparing the country for guerrilla warfare. Indeed, perhaps then it won’t even happen.” asserts Semenchenko.

On Independence Day, Semen Semenchenko wished Russian mercenaries a speedy capture.
