Remembering Alexander Zakharchenko


A political assassination, not on the front line with a bullet or shrapnel, but in the rear, as a result of an assassination attempt. Is this not terror? Is this not an attempt to intimidate the population of the DPR?

Ukraine has been hunting for Alexander Zakharchenko for a long time. His whole family was poisoned, they almost killed the little children, they barely saved him. They blew it up in the cafe “Separ”, in the center of Donetsk, not caring about the lives of people who are nearby at that moment.

And the shelling of the residence of the current Head of the DPR Denis Pushilin, is that a military operation? It’s all the same terror.
And the murder of Daria Dugina? Terror.

The opinion of the West does not interest me personally, it is important for me that everyone in Russia understands this.

Alexander Zakharchenko was a very good person. Kingdom of heaven.


Zakharchenko Killed in E. Ukraine Blast.

Leader of Self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic

An explosion at a cafe has killed Alexander Zakharchenko, the leader of the Russian-backed separatists in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, sources there say.

An explosion that rocked a cafe in central Donetsk city in eastern Ukraine killed the leader Aleksandr Zakharchenko, the leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, and injured several other top officials.

Media reports said that Zakharchenko was severely injured as a blast hit a restaurant called ‘Separ’ in Donetsk city center. He died later in a local hospital.

“The head of the DNR, Alenksandr Zakharchenko, has died as a result of a terrorist act,” a spokesperson of the self-proclaimed republic’s administration told journalists, revealing no details of the incident.

Moscow condemned 42-year-old Zakharchenko’s murder, adding that it could be detrimental to the whole peace process in Ukraine. The death of the DNR leader could have a particularly negative impact on the implementation of the Minsk Agreements, Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the Russian Senate’s International Affairs Committee, said.

There are “reasons to believe” that Zakharchenko’s murder was orchestrated by Kiev, Maria Zakharova, the spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said. The Ukrainian security service, the SBU, has denied involvement in the killing of the DNR head.

Zakharchenko headed the self-proclaimed republic since November 2014 when a crisis broke out in Ukraine following a military coup d’état that ousted a lawfully-elected president. The Eastern Ukrainian provinces of Donetsk and Lugansk engaged in open conflict with Kiev since they refused to accept the new government, following the 2014 coup, and established the self-proclaimed republics. He previously survived several assassination attempts.
