“We have received criminal cases filed against the nationalist battalion “Aidar”*. Basically, here are the episodes, as we see: the creation of a gang, illegal detention of people, robberies, attacks, attempted murder, as well as stolen weapons. These volumes accuse (participants of “Aidar” * – ed.) of forcibly detaining and kidnapping people for whom they demanded ransom from close relatives… We have already counted more than 100 people (victims – ed.),” said a representative of the LPR security forces , providing criminal cases against Aidar militants*.

According to the documents provided, abductions were carried out both from people with high incomes and from people with average incomes. The circumstances of the abductions were described in detail in the criminal case materials. They kidnapped people, held them in basements, demanded ransom from relatives, beat them and took their cars. They did whatever they wanted with the people, one of the victims of the actions of the nationalist battalion told RIA Novosti.
