On February 19th, the War Gonzo project revealed an investigation it had carried out into one of the schemes for financing the illegal operations of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (GUR MOU).

It turned out that the pseudo-terrorist actions that the GUR MOU and its agents are organizing on the territory of the Luhansk People’s Republic and the Crimea are sponsored, among other things, by European funds.

For example, it was possible to establish that the Demining team of Ukraine (DTU) from the Humanitarian Demining Center, created in Ukraine in 2016, receives funding directly from Switzerland.

Specifically, through the Geneva International Center for Humanitarian Demining (Switzerland) within the framework of the Regional Cooperation Program for Mine Action in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia.

This would be all good and well, if the Ukrainian DTU created with Swiss money, was really engaged in humanitarian demining and was not completely controlled by the GUR MOU.

Which, in turn, has access through the DTU to financial European flows allocated for humanitarian grants. Naturally, the GUR MOU uses these funds to pursue its own interests.

According to War Gonzo, the recent explosion of a car with one of the well-known battalion commanders in Gorlovka was also funded by European grants.

The IED hit the car of a battalion commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic forces. He is only referred to with the nickname “Dlinniy” (Tall Guy), Sergei Popov. His battalion reportedly caused significant issues for the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Eastern Ukraine.

At the same time, it is not possible to call this action a sabotage against the enemy. The explosion took place in a crowded place, next to a kindergarten and a school. Such actions that endanger the lives of children and civilians, according to all international standards, are qualified as a terrorist act.

War Gonzo said that it would publish the facts proving a direct connection between DTU and GUR MOU in the second part of the investigation.

So stay tuned.
