    Just a question: Feygin deleted his twitter post already. We searched it already but couldn’t find it – neither with google cache nor with wayback machine. What does make you so sure that this is no fake? regards Dagmar

      My heart is on Ukrainian side, however this document look like fake to me. It doesn’t have typical military form, and Strelkov is highly expierenced soldier. No date, no place, strange number, etc.

    Why hasn’t anyone killed that son-of-a-bitch streklov yet?

    I find this hard to believe, but if it is, Strelkov is human garbage. Stripping the dead of the victims families and adding to their emotional suffering. This IS an International crime.
