“Breaking: Ukrainian special services kidnapped Russian servicemen in Rostov region”
Provocations by Ukrainian Special Services in the Russian Federation are not stopping.
According to information from law enforcement sources received by “Russian Spring,” on September 12 at 6 A.M. a Ukrainian reconnaissance and sabotage group kidnapped a serviceman of the Russian army, Viktor Nikolaevich Barsukov, and his brother, Nikolay Nikolaevich Barsukov, in the village of Chertkovo of the Rostov region of the Russian Federation. They were smuggled back to Ukraine in the direction of Melovoe.
Seargant V.N. Barsukov serves in the village of Mulino in Nizhny Novgorod region. At the time of his abduction, he had been on short-term holiday at his parents’ residence in the village of Glubokoe in the Petropavlovsky district of Voronezh region. He went with his brother to Chertkovo to visit relatives.
This information was confirmed to “Russian Spring” by the relatives of the kidnapped.
Melovoe and Chertkovo are in fact a double village, divided by railroad tracks. One side is Russian territory and the other is Ukrainian. The border there was always considered a mere formality.
The residents of both villages, many of whom are related, practically move in both directions without problems. Ukrainian saboteurs have taken advantage of this. According to eye witnesses, they betrayed the trust of the Barsukov brothers and lured them into an ambush. Then, using force, they brought them to Ukrainian territory.
The incident is yet another grave provocation carried out by Ukrainian security services in the Russian Federation. It is not excluded that this abduction of Russian citizens will be used as the next “true evidence” of the involvement of Russian servicemen in the inter-Ukrainian armed conflict in Donbass.
