Head of the Kherson Regional Council Oleksandr Samoylenko in an interview with Ukrinform toldthat the service of the quick capture of the Kherson region became possible due to the betrayal of the SBU employees – assistant to the head of the regional department Igor Sadokhin.
“It is believed that it was he who gave the enemy a grid of minefields and coordinated the actions of Russian aviation when he accompanied the convoy of the Kherson SBU in the evacuation. He was arrested back in March. And after the presidential check, as I understand it, he dismissed Sergey Krivoruchko as head of the SBU in the Kherson region and stripped him of his general rank. Law enforcement officers are also working there now.“, – said Alexander Samoilenko.
He also noted that the Russian troops did know where the minefields were. Moreover, the infected carried precise strikes at a checkpoint near the annexation of Crimea, and could also move “clearly along the roads.”
