KIEV – Although pro-Kremlin terrorists from Donetsk and Luhansk in the Eastern Ukraine, accused Kiev for assassination of the known terrorist Arseny Pavlov nicknamed Motorola, the plot might have been designed by the terror commanders themselves, newly revealed facts suggest.
It appears that the improvised explosive device installed in the ceiling of the lift targeted Motorola upon return to his apartment in Donetsk on Sunday evening. Motorola died on the scene.
The pro-Kremlin terrorists have claimed the bomb to have been a ‘terrorist act carried out by a Ukrainian sabotage group” and the terrorist leader Alexander Zakharchenko has threatened Ukraine with a ‘proportional response’.
The Ukrainian authorities would rather run operation to capture a high-ranking terrorist instead of killing him. It is Moscow who would be beneficiary of this murder.
The reason for this assassination are much complex and may include internal power struggle inside the terror group and a purge of inconvenient witnesses for Kremlin.
Western analysts suggested that the motive of the Motorola’s murder could be a power struggle inside the terrorist group.

A considerable number of terrorists in both self-proclaimed ‘republics’ have died in suspicious circumstances in recent weeks. Others were gravely injured.
Pavlov was on the EU’s sanction list, but Ukraine was hoping that the militant would one day stand trial at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. He will never be tried, and obviously we can never know whether a court of law would have found him guilty of war crimes. There were, nonetheless, serious grounds for bringing such charges.
Another reason for his assassination may be Russia’s attempt to get rid of any witness that may have knowledge about the shooting down of MH17, the Malaysian plane over the Eastern Ukraine.
In an interview with the Ukrainian journalists from Kiev Post Motorola admitted that he killed 15 war prisoners.
Another reason for his assassination may be Russia’s attempt to get rid of any witness that may have knowledge about the shooting down of MH17, the Malaysian plane over the Eastern Ukraine. Motorola was in capacity to know the details regarding the moving of the Russian BUK launcher to the Ukraine.
Pavlov, Motorola, was Kremlin’s mercenary who fought during the Second Russian War against Chechnya. According to the witnesses Russian national’s behavior characterized unusual brutality and disregard for human person. He was 33.
