Freed hostages from the terrorists “LC” ultras Luhansk football club Zorya Vladislav Ovcharenko in an interview with “Gromadska” said that the idea to burn the flag, “LC” fans did not appear immediately.

“First, we wanted to make a video about the fallen comrade from the “Azov” with a call sign Aksen, to say an introductory word to the memory of Oleg, to show a banner to ignite smoke bombs and all. But accidentally in the backpack turned out to be a flag of “LC”. And there was this idea – to remove burning it. All supported it. We got it all, and then some of the guys said that they regret it that I do… Well, that’s their choice,” said Ovcharenko.

He noted that after the detention of terrorists “surfaced” his correspondence with friends of the regiment “Azov”.

“Besides, I had a very interesting conversation with one person for exploration in relation to certain objects. They (the militants. – “GORDON”) accused me of terrorism, dug, this has gone in treason. I, of course, all of these correspondence he paid well, and the Subject (person, together with Artem Ovcharenko Ahmerov.–“GORDON”) as well. Flag this stuff… I stood there and smiled (when terrorists read “sentence”. – “GORDON”). By the time I have lived only 20 years old, I did not understand: to serve 17 years – how’s that?” – said Ovcharenko.

5 November 2016 the representatives of the so-called Ministry of state security of the terrorist organization “LNR” announced the detention in Luhansk “leaders of the underground neo-Nazi group”. Militants accused Ovcharenko and Akhmerova espionage. The detainees were allegedly recruited by the employee of the Main intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of defence of Ukraine with the call sign Big and Evil. Later Ovcharenko was sentenced to 17 years in prison for espionage.

On 27 December in the Donbass held an exchange of detainees. According to the Prosecutor General, Ukraine has exchanged 73 233 detained on Ukrainian hostages.

Among those released – Ovcharenko, Akhmerov, blogger Edward Nadeljaev, religious scientist Igor Kozlovsky, Ukrainian military Valentin Bogdan, Alex Kirichenko and Eugene Kuznetsov.

The head of the security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak said that the militants “LDNR” continue to hold 103 Ukrainians.
