Russian citizen Girkin (Strelkov) appoints Kramatorsk police chief
Denis Besproskurny was introduced as the new police chief of Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, on Tuesday, the Kramatorsk.info news Web site has reported.
Besproskurny was introduced to the city's police officers, who were invited by representatives of the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic," it said.
"Besproskurny read out a decree endorsing his appointment signed by a riot police officer of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Igor Strelkov," the Web site said.
The SBU previously established the involvement in the murder of Horlivka Town Council deputy Volodymyr Rybak of a criminal group headed by Russian citizen Strelkov. It also proved Strelkov's involvement in the abduction of the mission members in Sloviansk (Donetsk region).
In Horlivka, gunmen, on orders from Strelkov, seized employees of the SBU Alfa special police force who had been sent to arrest Rybak's suspected killer.
Colonel Igor Strelkov's actual name is Igor Girkin, born in 1970 and registered in Moscow.
Ukrainian law enforcers have put Girkin on the wanted list.
