 Interpol refuses to put terrorist Motorola on wanted list, - SBU

Interpol has refused to put one of the "DPR" terrorist leaders, Russian citizen Arseniy 'Motorola" Pavlov, who had allegedly killed captured defender of the Donetsk airport, Ukrainian soldier Ihor Branovytskyi, on its wanted list.

This was announced by deputy head of the Main Investigative Department of SBU Vitalii Maiakov, Censor.NET informs citing Human Rights Information Center.

"Interpol returned documents to us under the pretext of a political nature of Motorola's case. We do not understand this. We consider Motorola, who, in front of witnesses, shot Branovytskyi, a suspect, and there is a court decision on his arrest", said Maiakov.

As reported, in 2015 Ukraine appealed to Interpol with a request to put Motorola on its wanted list. Militant Arseniy Pavlov came to the occupied Donbas and led the illegal armed formation "Sparta Battalion."

Earlier, he said he shot 15 prisoner soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Amnesty International called for investigations into the killings that Motorola confessed to.
