Drug addict and self-proclaimed “mayor” of Sloviansk Vyacheslav Ponomarev gathered the few supporters that still remained with him and said that Chechen mercenaries are going to level Sloviansk to the ground. Thus, Ponomarev confessed that Russian curators practically set them up and allowed the Chechens to burn the city to the ground.
“Dear residents of Sloviansk! The current situation got out of our control. The Russian curators have not kept their promise of helping us if the Kyiv junta begins a genocide of the Russian people,” said Ponomarev.
