"Komov: Cornet and Plotnitsky bombarded Luhansk in the summer of 2014," Necro Mancer quoted the Russian mercenary Komov.
"I have long stayed quiet about how Igor Kornet seized power in the LPR's Interior Ministry and what did he do to merit the right to still run this body. He is obviously above the court ruling sacking him.
"When banderivtsi (pejorative term used by the pro-Russian separatists for the Ukrainian patriots - Ed.) came to power in Ukraine in 2014, he was one of those sending police officers loyal to the LPR (breakaway "Luhansk Peoples Republic" in eastern Ukraine - Ed.) to guard the checkpoints. Although he never personally guarded any chreckpoint, he and Plotnitsky were nourishing the idea of seizing power [in the "LPR"]. And he succeeded. It was him and Plotnitsky who plotted artillery strike on Luhansk and he was personally watching the Zaria battaloin aiming its guns at Luhansk and bombarding it. He was the first among those who shouted from the housetops in Luhansk that Ukrops (pejorative term used by the pro-Russian separatists for Ukrainians - Ed.) slaughter peaceful residents of the LPR," the pro-Russian separatist Komov said.
