"If you wonder why we haven’t said a word about the hitman – it's Artem Matiushyn whom I identified yesterday and Anton Pshenychnyi did it today – we acted so because the procedure had to be held under the law. That’s why we said nothing. Once again for those who still haven’t got it: Artem Matiushyn was the one who murdered our companion-in-arms Vitalii Oleshko," the soldier said.
As reported, a member of the Donbas Battalion, Vitalii Oleshko, nom de guerre Sarmat, was gunned down by an unidentified person in Berdiansk on July 31.
