Two main questions were asked: What am I doing in the Lugansk People’s Republic, and what business do I have with [Andrei] Yakovenko.
Some members were freed before the events of winter 2013-14. One of them was Alexander Gerasimov, who was among the defenders of the House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014, where he received severe burns. At the time, Andrei Yakovenko was still jailed in Torez, and in July 2014 he was released by the Supreme Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
We must pay tribute that the SBU officers behaved very correctly.
Well, my parents did not have to feel uncomfortable responding to their questions, since I do not report on my activities to them, though I have nothing to hide. I always speak openly about the struggle.
With Yakovenko (as with other “terrorists” and “separatists”) we have one great common cause — the overthrow of the Nazis and the oligarchs and the release of our native city. Odessa will be free!
P.S.: in 2007 or 2008, a film was made about the Yakovenko group. You can see it here:
