Official appeal of command and soldiers of special forces battalion ”Donbas-Urkaina” as to scandals around Semen Semenchenko, ex-commander of national guard battalion “Donbas”

Dear patriots!

Due to the constant scandals around ex-commander of national guard battalion “Donbas” Semen Semenchenko (including the recent one, which took place in the USA during the concert of famous Ukrainian singer Anastasiia Prihod’ko) we are compelled to make an official appeal:

 

  1. Detached special forces battalion ”Donbas-Urkaina” does not maintain any relations and have nothing in common with Semen Semenchenko. But we are closely associated to the name of subunit “Donbas”, as many of us saw their service there in June of 2014. And we are concerned about the honour and reputation of national guard battalion “Donbas” as our fates are closely related to it, and in memory of our dead brothers in arms.

 

2.We appreciate Semenchenko’s significance in starting and popularization of subunit “Donbas” but we must admit that his recent actions discredit honour, dignity and reputation not only of Mr. Semenchenko himself, but of national guard battalion “Donbas” as well.

 

  1. Command and soldiers of special forces battalion ”Donbas-Urkaina” express their sincere and continued support to their brothers in arms of national guard battalion “Donbas” in the situation resulting from their ex-commander’s contemptible and disgraceful conduct.

 

  1. We do understand how hard it is for national guard soldiers to be in the front line. We do our best to finish our new-comers’ military training as soon as possible and help our brothers in arms as part of special forces of Ukraine. We express our support to national guard subunit “Donbas” and sincerely regret about all the scandals around batallion’s ex-commander.

 

  1. On behalf of all Semenchenko’s brothers in arms we apologize to all citizens of Ukraine and express our profound sympathy.

 

The honour of  both officer of National Guard of Ukraine and officer of Special Forces of Ukraine is to be crystal clear. As clear as our love of our country.

 

With respect to all Ukrainian people, command and soldiers of special forces battalion ”Donbas-Urkaina”
