PLAN TO DEPLOY ARMY TO QUASH PROTESTS

24.02.14


Hlavkom has published a copy of a telegram sent by Yuriy Illiyin, the man appointed last week by Viktor Yanukovych to take control of the armed forces.

It was widely reported the the man Illiyin had replaced, Volodymyr Zamana, had refused to allow the army to be used in quashing the anti-government protests taking place throughout the country.

On 20 February, almost immediately after taking up his post, Illiyin wrote a telegram to some of Ukraines strongest army divisions (which include special forces and snipers). It confirms that his Illiyin and his leadership were prepared to deploy the army in quashing the revolution with the use of arms.
