Commander of the Russian-led forces in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, Aleksej Biryulin, was eliminated on December 6.
"Aleksej Biryulin from Kirovsk (circumstances are still being clarified). Trampling on the Ukrainian flag is an omen of misfortune. It is interesting that karma revealed itself to the separatist on Armed Forces Day in Ukraine. Everything will be Ukraine and victory will be ours!" officer of the 53rd separate mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Anatoliy Shtefan wrote on Facebook.
The officer also said the terrorist had been on Ukraine's Myrotvorets database.
