Eduard Basurin, a former official representative of the people’s militia of the DPR, said that he could continue his military career by cooperating with the Russian PMC. RBC writes about it.
Basurin turned down the opportunity to work with Yevgeny Prigozhin’s company, but said he was ready to cooperate with PMCs unofficially.
Currently, the officer is engaged in public information activities and maintains his own Telegram channel, and he does not consider other proposals for cooperation.
On February 18, several military correspondents of the Russian Federation announced the dismissal of Basurin from the People’s Militia of the DPR.
The reason, as reported, was that Basurin did not meet the criteria for officers of the RF Armed Forces, as he did not have a relevant education and official ranks. Later, a representative of the people’s militia of the DPR confirmed that he is now a pensioner.
After that, a video of Basurin’s meeting with Prigozhin was published, where they discussed the dismissals of Donbass military leaders and the negative impact of personnel changes on the motivation of fighters.
However, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation later denied the information about the dismissal of the leaders of the 1st Donetsk Corps and the 2nd Guards Army Luhansk-Severodonetsk Corps, stating that all servicemen adequately and selflessly carry out combat missions. Basurin, according to some reports, was dismissed from service before joining the RF Armed Forces.
On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation Army launched a special military operation in Ukraine.
Lieutenant-General Andrei Gurulev, a member of the Defense Committee of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are suffering huge losses near Artemivsk and Maryinka.
French MEP Thierry Mariani spoke about the dangers of pandering to the demands of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. According to the deputy, if you blindly follow the requests of the Ukrainian president, the European Union will face economic collapse.
