Members of the so-called “people’s militias” in Horlivka suspect that an “assassination squad” of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) is active in their city, military analyst Dmytro Tymchuk, head of the Information Resistance group, reports on Facebook Monday, December 8.
There are persistent rumors among former members of the militias organized by the terrorist leader Igor Bezler (Bes) that an SBU “assassination squad” is active in their city, Tymchuk writes.
According to Tymchuk, the militants believe the SBU got a hold of a database of the Horlivka militias and that Ukrainian security service operatives placed in the occupied territories are methodically seizing or liquidating “Bezler’s fighters” who have remained in the city and who have now been incorporated into the “Army of Novorossiya.”
“During the past week, three former commanders of the Bezler gang units have been found dead with obvious signs of a violent death. Two others have vanished without a trace,” Tymchuk reports.
Additionally, Tymchuk reports that in a number of localities in the Donbas (Torez, Rovenky, Snizhne, Krasnyi Luch) terrorists are continuing to carry out forcible “mobilization activities” for the so-called “Army of Novorossiya” in businesses and mines of the region. The total number of the local residents “mobilized” in this fashion in recent days stands at fewer than 30, he writes.
As previously reported, Igor Bezler (Bes) was one of the leaders of the Donetsk separatists, the commander of the so-called “people’s militia” in Horlivka and a close associate of the Russian ultra-nationalist commander Igor Girkin (Strelkov). There were unconfirmed rumors recently that Bezler had been eliminated by Russian security services for refusing to cooperate with Russian military authorities in the Donbas.
