“Zasoba Andrey, worked at the mine for 22 years. The mine closed, work in town, live not for what the money went. There was a place in the “manometre” – got in. Then six months of ground in Torez. It showed what it was, and explained everything.

Sent somewhere on 2 November to build a new position, somewhere in the vicinity of the airport. I and another 5-6 people came. By evening, reinforcements arrived – 3 people new, I even don’t know their callsigns. They started to celebrate your arrival, drinking alcohol may not only not know, have not seen. Called a couple of people of ours, they didn’t like that we on its own. Then they did not like Roma Bekshaev, Oriental appearance is not liked.

(They) Drank, went out, dragged him out of bed. We were told to lie. And the eldest on the position of said “don’t touch, so it should be all right.” Did he (Becchio) “dark” beat. He came, she lay down again. Said, “all that lie here.” They returned to where walked. Then two came out and began to speak – we now even go out. The elder tells them – only to get there and back. And then started they started talking, maybe we won’t even back, you want to walk, you want – do not walk, then so will we. And the incident occurred.

We were told to close and not to leave the dormitory. For the sound, I determined, followed by two blows with a rifle butt. This older they failed and decided to choose a new commander, because the one they did not like.

Here when I heard they “Teach” already “removed”, or how you say it. And we sat down and began to say that this (older) is already there, let the new leader to choose who will command us. I think quite the madness started, like in the cartoon some. (One of ours) came and said – what are you doing, let’s kind of help he’ll call. They – none of your business, now is gone, come back. Under the threat of guns with stoned people say – it’s scary.

Night never released, did not allowed to chat, no call, nothing. In the morning, when I came out, I say pour yourself some tea and think what to do. I – what happened? They’re your boots under the chair rests, you beat him, you got here. I asked where the “Firefighter”, said can not look, it is not. They chose a senior, decided to attach conditions, to put the defenses and demand regime change in the platoon. Say you have time left, because it is already morning. To the extent that all of us fail, because “one less, one more”.

I went, wanted “back” call, but it did not. And so it came to Ukrainian checkpoint. Obviously, there is no tea was tea with something apparently. The beginning of a little roof to endure. Somewhere deep down I knew that going wrong, but went anyway. And came, saw in the form of machines, where it came from. Say – call senior. No resistance, no hugs – nothing.

You’re or there, or there. But where? I had to take two bodies, which I do not have a relationship? I was sober and they are drunk, stoned. I had this to take, to say that I killed them? When I left, I was not stopped. Only on the phone said, if we do not come back, and kill everything. With others, I think it’s OK. I think they have afraid even.

That kind of extreme – murder is a rarity, of course. But to sit tight to drink for acquaintance is not uncommon.
