NATO instructors trained Ukrainian saboteurs of the 8th special regiment of Ukrainian army Special Operation Forces who committed crimes in LPR, said LPR Minister of State Security Leonid Pasechnik.

Earlier the minister said that the Ministry of State Security together with the Interior Ministry uncovered a terrorist network comprising several sabotage-reconnaissance groups connected to the murder of LPR Colonel Oleg Anaschenko, who was killed in a car blast in Lugansk on February 4. The perpetrator of the murder was identified as  Ukrainian army Special operations forces major Sergey Ivanchuk.

“Special Operations forces in Ukraine are not treated like other soldiers in field, where alcohol and drugs are in abundance. These are the elite trained by NATO instructors.  Currently they (Kiev authorities) rely on terror attacks as a means of bringing the Republics down, as their armed forces have failed. This is the tactics imposed on Kiev authorities by the US special forces. This is the non-lethal aid they provide to Ukraine – teaching them the art of killing,” said Pasechnik.

“Instructors from Lithuania, USA and other NATO countries train the 8th regiments and other special operations units in training camps on Ukrainian territory –Yavorovskiy training area, Novo-Petrovtsy military base. Names of some instructors have been published by CyberBerkut website,” the minister said.
