The commander of the separatist battalion Vostok, Aleksandr Khodakovsky, has been denied entry to Russia.
"I, myself am under certain pressure to some degree. I already have two pieces of paper forbidding the entry to Russia," Khodakovsky said on his YouTube channel. According to him, he does not understand the reasons for this ban.
Earlier, the SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) reported that Russian special services could possibly target the separatist field commanders Bezler and Khodakovsky.
In addition, the dismissal of the so-called Foreign Minister of the DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic), Alexander Kofman took place at the request of President Putin's adviser Vladislav Surkov.
The former assistant of Svyatoslav Piskun, Natalya Nikonorova, was elevated to the position of the Foreign Minister of the DPR in place of Kofman.
