Kremlin has concluded that Kyiv is implicated in the death of the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic Aleksander Zakharchenko on the basis of the information collected at the scene of the crime, states in response to a question the Press Secretary for the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov. He is being quoted by RIA Novosti on Monday, October 22.

“On the basis of the work related to clarifying the circumstances and determining those behind the killing that is being carried out at the scene of the crime, at the scene of this act of terrorism, as well as on the basis of other acts of terrorism that took place in Donbass republics.” Peskov said.

The Kremlin representative added that the investigation is being carried out by local internal affairs agencies. They rely upon evidence drawn at the scene. 

Zakharchenko died in an explosion in Donetsk cafe, on August 31. He arrived there to pay the tribute to the memory of a Russian singer Joseph Kobzon. Soon after his killing, the Republic’s authorities reported the detention of the suspected who had stated that the Ukrainian side was involved in the matter. The Donetsk People’s Republic also claims involvement of Western intelligence agencies. 

Russian leader Vladimir Putin called Zakharchenko’s killing villainous. He said that the criminals won’t be able to bring people of Donbass to their knees.
