The Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov is forced to speak the untruth, officially stating that the war in the Donbass is purely an internal conflict of Ukraine. This opinion was expressed by the creator of Vostok terrorist battalion Alexander Khodakovsky at his Internet Conference.
Khodakovsky urged not to believe the official words of Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the question of why the speaker of the Kremlin does not recognize that the "Donbass fights for the interests of Russia", and calls the war in the east of the country exclusively the internal Ukrainian conflict.
"Well, it is necessary to understand that Russian officials… have to stick to the official line and formal logic in their statements. You do not know what Peskov has said after he turned off the microphone. And what he really thinks about it," – the militant said.
Alexander Khodakovsky is a former employee of the Security Service of Ukraine, who had betrayed the oath and became one of the leaders of the Donbass terrorists from the first days of the Russian hybrid war against Ukraine. He created and headed the Vostok battalion. He is currently moved away from all the official positions in the "DPR". He is in the confrontation with the so-called "head of the republic" Alexander Zakharchenko. He is an ideologist of the accession of the Donbass to Russia, but his approaches to this question do not find understanding in the Russian Federation.
