War rumors are full. The most vague stories of confrontation in the Southeast
The confrontation in the Southeast overgrows with its “vague stories”, which are often very difficult to prove the authenticity or unreality of.
"Just a passerby - a black guy"
In early March, from the first days of the conflict in the Southeast, when there was no talk of any military confrontation, suspicious young people in the form of NATO appeared in Donetsk, who were actively discussed on social networks, posting the corresponding video.
Moreover, some strangers were dark-skinned, so it was difficult to call them Ukrainians or vice versa-Russians.
They also talked about the presence in the region of mercenaries from the private American army Academi (formerly Blackwater).
Locals said the military ranged from about 25 to 40 years old, moved by companies of two to five, and behaved fairly freely.
“The group includes representatives of different countries with their military emblems and insignia. The Baltic countries, Poland, Hungary, France, there are representatives of the UK, Canada and the USA,” they wrote on social networks.
On May 9, the Vostok battalion arrived in Donetsk from Mariupol under the Belarusian and Soviet combat banners.
It is reported that the Vostok battalion is a special unit of the Russian Defense Ministry, formed from former Chechen fighters.
In the battles for Kramatorsk, militias blew up a Ukrainian military helicopter. According to eyewitnesses, a colorful Babai made a sniper shot from a grenade launcher.
"Having climbed to the roof of the house, he fired from a weapon that looked like a grenade launcher. Then Babai went downstairs, got into an UAZ car and calmly drove away," people say.
Earlier, Russian citizen Alexander Mozhaev was accused of collaborating with Russian special services, but he categorically denied the rumors, saying that he had come to fight for ideological reasons.
Chechen Front and Don Cossacks
Also, a video appeared on the network, allegedly confirming the presence of Chechen fighters in the Donbass.
In particular, one of the plots was filmed by British journalists who visited Slavyansk.
Chechens are allegedly present in Gorlovka, Krasny Liman, Slavyansk and Donetsk.
In another video, one of the supporters of the Donetsk People’s Republic stated that 450 Don Cossacks and about three hundred volunteers from Chechnya arrived in the Red Estuary.
In turn, the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov on his instagram page noted that the Chechens have no goal to fight in Ukraine, but they are not indifferent to the events in our country.
“There are no Chechen battalions in Ukraine. The ruling junta is trying to blame their punitive operations in Slavyansk for the presence of Chechen battalions among the city’s defenders. This is absurd! If they were there, I assure you, those who make such statements would have long fled not only from Slavyansk, but even from Kiev, which, in fact, they don’t control. Please calm down Arsen Avakov and others who see Chechens in every dark-skinned person and shudder, uttering this word. If a person is dark-skinned, this does not mean that he is necessarily a Chechen It would be necessary he should know that Chechens are blue-eyed, fair-haired, and red. As they say, fear has big eyes, "he said.
Recently, representatives of the Lugansk People’s Republic detained about twenty black students.
The head of the local counterintelligence, Vladimir Gromov, said that the detained people are "a guard unit from Africa."
Journalists with anti-aircraft guns
Just the other day, the Ukrainian military detained two Russian LifeNews journalists Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saychenko during an anti-terrorist operation near Kramatorsk.
A few days later, the matter went international, giving rise to a serious scandal.
Business card Yarosh and others
Militias and the Russian Federation have repeatedly accused the Right Sector of mopping up in the Donbass. Allegedly, fighters of Dmitry Yarosh under the guise of the National Guard of Ukraine are fighting in the Southeast.
Dmitry Yarosh himself announced the mobilization and called for a guerrilla war, but denied participation in the anti-terrorist operation.
“We do not conduct any separate military operations in the east or in the south of Ukraine. The anti-terrorist operation to eliminate the anti-state uprising is carried out by the Anti-Terrorism Center, which includes various state law enforcement agencies. The right sector helps the state law enforcement agencies, provides logistical support, intelligence information. Members of the Right Sector did not have unregistered weapons. Recent events in Donetsk and Odessa showed that the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other security forces division can not be guarantors of the country's territorial integrity is necessary to intensify the work on the formation of volunteer units "-. he said.
We add that after one of the clashes near Slavyansk at the battlefield, they allegedly found a business card of Dmitry Yarosh.
This message was the subject of numerous jokes on the Internet among political opponents who even created a website where everyone can print a business card from the leader of the Right Sector.
Opposition black men
Black men appeared in the Donbas who went into opposition to the self-proclaimed commander-in-chief of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
Igor Girkin, who complained that the men of Donbass did not want to help terrorists, and called on women to help.
"Mobilization of women is an unworthy step for a man, a warrior. Hiding behind the backs of the weaker is a method completely consistent with their rotten essence. Ukrainians do not want to kill each other. Ukraine is indivisible, Ukrainian people are united, and soon the Ukrainians of the east will ignore the calls of the separatists to fight against them, "said the black men.
Later, a video appeared on the network of a clash of black men with militias, filmed by ViceNews Correspondent Henry Langston.
