The FSB of Russia reported on the murder of four Ukrainians while trying to cross the border with the Bryansk region. This is reported by the propaganda RIA Novosti.
The Russian special service reported that the dead had foreign weapons, in particular SIG Sauer submachine guns, communication and navigation devices and four bombs with a total capacity of about 40 kg of TNT.< /p>
The FSB also named the names of the killed Ukrainians: Yuriy Gorovets, born in 1988, call sign «Svyatosha», the Russians called him the commander of the group; Maxim Mikhailov, born in 1990, call sign «Nepiipivo»; Taras Karpyuk, born in 1984, call sign «Tarasy»; Bogdan Lyagov, born in 2003, callsign «Apollon».
Information about the death of Ukrainians was confirmed by a serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yevhen Karas.
Yuri Gorovets, 34
«Successful saboteur. This was far from his first reconnaissance exit. The Russians paid a terrible price… Nationalist. Christian. Actor. Traveler. Veteran. Long-term member of the «Brotherhood» Dmitry Korchinsky», — Karas wrote about Yury Gorovets.
Maxim Mikhailov, 32
«Cossack«Nepiybeer». Cheerful and depraved. Kind and brave. Forever young «provocateur of Korchinsky». Soft, but with a twinkle in the eyes. A romantic who lit stars with a plastid over the occupied territories of Bryansk, Kursk and Belgorod», — Karas told about Maxim Mikhailov.
Bogdan Lyagov, 19
«From the beginning of the war, a 19-year-old boy began to fight. Immediately volunteered for the sabotage group. Can you imagine the number of successful surgeries since February… The guy is extremely brave. Always volunteered. And although, due to his young age, he complained that they often did not take on the most difficult tasks, but «Apollo» was happy. He was considered brilliantly capable, because he showed some of the best results in physical and tactical training»,— he published a memoir of a military man who served with Bogdan Lyagov.
Taras Karpyuk, 38
Insider draws attention to the fact that civilian SIG Sauer MPX carbines are not in service with the Ukrainian army, but they can be bought at any hunting store for 143 thousand hryvnias, they have mechanical sights, and they do not shoot in automatic mode.
< p>Sources of the publication in the Ukrainian police reported that the carbines turned out to be the personal hunting weapons of the dead, registered on them.
Military expert Leonid Dmitriev noted that the injuries of the dead are typical for blowing up a car on a mine – the lower part of the body was most affected . The expert also drew attention to other oddities:
One of the carbines has damage, typical for a shrapnel that has entered. None of the carbines is not brought into combat condition. None of the carbines were converted from hunting carbines, since according to Ukrainian legislation there is a length limit, and in order to withstand it, folding butts from the factory for the Ukrainian market are pinned.
The dead could hardly have been sent on a sabotage mission , since two of them were discharged from the Armed Forces of Ukraine after being injured in 2014. The sources of the publication claim that they did not find evidence of their service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 2022.
