According to the outlet's investigation, all the paramilitary units of the "LPR" were informed May 20 that several subversive and reconnaissance groups from Ukraine infiltrated into the territory of the "Republic". All senior officers were allowed to go to service in civilian clothes due to this fact.
The "LPR top officials" arrived to Mozgovoy in Alchevsk May 21 with the demand to join the "people's militia" and gave him time to make a decision until Monday." Mozgovoy decided to follow the path of Kozitsyn - that is to go to Russia. Only one person from his team was aware of it. He also knew that Mozgovoy was going to hold a press conference in Moscow on Monday, May 25," the outlet emphasizes.
