In an interview with Russia's propaganda website in October 2016, founder and leader of the terrorist battalion Vostok Alexander Khodakovsky physically threatened deputy chief of the Donetsk SBU counter-intelligence unit Oleksandr Kharaberiush blown up today in his car in Mariupol, Censor.NET reports.
Asked about countering the activity of the SBU in the "DPR," Khodakovsky said: "There are other persons there [in the SBU - ed.] that are on our watchlist. Such as Kharaberiush, Lesun and others. These are famous names... There are 'heroes' there who we want to ask many questions and for whom we have cartridges ready. And I can assure you that our plans against them will be fulfilled."
On March 31, Ukraine's Security Service Colonel Oleksandr Kharaberiush was killed in a car blast in Maruipol.
