As reported, Tornado Special Forces Company was earlier a part of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine. Eight Tornado soldiers, including its commander Ruslan Onyshchenko, were detained on charges of local residents' abduction, holding them in captivity, torture, murder, and a number of other serious crimes in June 2015. Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov signed the order disbanding Tornado Company July 18, 2015. The detachment has been liquidated, while its commander Ruslan Onyshchenko and several soldiers are being tried.
