 Killed Donbas warlords: How Kremlin eliminates unnecessary witnesses. PHOTOS

The murder of 'Motorola,' one of the militant leaders of Donbas separatists, yet again confirms the fact that the Russian authorities are not willing to leave unwanted witnesses to their crimes in the Donbas.

Censor.NET recalls that a series of assassinations of militant chieftains involved in the Russian occupation of the Donbas kicked off in 2014 in Antratsyt with the elimination of the so-called Cossack atamans - "military commander of the city" Vyacheslav Pinezhanin and "chief of staff" Mikhail Kovalev.

In January 2015, Alexander Bednov, the Batman rapid response group commander, was shot down in the vicinity of Luhansk. His fighters directly accused "LPR" leader Plotnitsky of organizing the murder.

In August this year, Nikolay Minin, Dremov's close associate, was killed in occupied Luhansk. According to one version, Minin was murdered for organizing an assassination attempt on "LPR" leader Ihor Plotnitsky. As reported, the militant was killed right in his bed, his head cut off.

Russian media mention the Wagner group, a private military company, as being behind the elimination of Mozgovoy, Bednov and Dremov. According to Russia's Fontanka, Wagner is Lt. Col. Dmitry Utkin, 46, professional military, commander of the 700th Separate Special Forces Detachment (Pechory, the Pskov region), the 2nd Separate Brigade of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) Spetsnaz until 2013.

Wagner is known for his commitment to the aesthetics and ideology of the Third Reich, which is in someway evidenced by his call sign in honor of the mystic composer.

In late January 2016, Zakharchenko's ("DPR" leader) thugs eliminated the rebellious Troia Battalion.

Gennady Tsypkalov, one of the "LPR" former leaders, was also killed in a rather explicit manner, while everything was chalked up to a mysterious "suicide" in a cell, which no one believed in.

As reported by some media, Tsypkalov, "LPR Council of Ministers" ex-chairman, had access to classified information, including the participation of Russia's secret services in the organization of separatist rallies in the Luhansk region that led to its subsequent occupation by the Russian army. Tsypkalov could be killed by FSB operatives so as to avoid the leakage of secret data.

On Sept. 19, 2016, Evgeny Zhilin, the Oplot militant group leader, was shot down by a killer at a suburban Moscow restaurant.
