Against the Background of Failures on the Front, Moscow Begins ‘Cleansing’ among LPR’s Leaders

According to data obtained by the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, ‘minister of LPR’s internal affairs Major General’ Kornet Ihor Oleksandrovych, born on April 29, 1973, was arrested by the officers of russia’s FSB and is currently being held in the FSB detention center in Rostov-on-Don.

The arrest of the ‘minister of internal affairs of the Luhansk People’s Republic’ has provoked a negative reaction from the part of law enforcement agencies and political leadership of ‘republic’, who are assessing this as the launching of changes in a security bloc of the quasi-state. However, the head of ‘LPR’ L. Pasichnyk is making his every effort to release I. Kornet from custody and restore him on the post.

Thus, the ‘cleansing’ among the political leadership of the so-called LPR is evidence of the fact that Moscow recognizes an inability to perform assigned tasks by the current leaders of LPR amid ongoing war with Ukraine. Due to personnel changes and intimidation of the leadership of the quasi-republic, russia is trying as quickly as possible to establish effective work to mobilize human resources in the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region in order to quickly replace the losses in units of the 2nd Army Corps of the russian occupation forces and to continue conducting hostilities against Ukraine.
