On October 16, 2016, Arseny Pavlov (call sign “Motorola”) had been killed.


DPR’s Ministry of State Security is considering an attempt on the life of the hero as a terrorist act. The explosive device was triggered in an apartment building. Among the victims are civilians, house infrastructure suffered significant damage.


The aim was to cause the human and material damage to the Republic, to intimidate the population, to destabilize the situation. 


Despite Kiev regime attempts to evade responsibility, the investigation has already found sufficient evidence to confirm that the attack had been prepared by special services of Ukraine and implemented by the agents of those services who have stepped up after Poroshenko’s statement to refuse to carry out the political part of the Minsk process.


DPR’s MSS considers this terrorist attack as an attempt of the “war party” of Ukraine to disrupt the process of peaceful settlement of the civil conflict at a time when the international level makes an important practical steps for the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
