Political and military leaders of the two breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk are likely to be assassinated in the nearest future, a veteran of the Special Operations Group of the KGB, Valery Kiselyov said. According to him, the attack on Alexei Mozgovoi had been meticulously organized. Mozgovoi was killed by high class professionals, he said.
"Without a doubt, it was a well-planned special operation. Firstly, the killers achieved the desired result. Secondly, they left no traces after the attack. They were not caught, and no one knows in which direction they left. This is an indication of high-level training," said Valery Kiselyov.

Alexei Mozgovoi had almost no chance to survive, said Kiselev. There was a powerful state machine working against him.
"The desire to wipe out the two breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk is too strong. It must be understood that such attacks may occur again," Kiselev said.
As Pravda.Ru reported, members of the Ukrainian subversive group "Shadows" claimed responsibility for the murder of Alexei Mozgovoi and his associates.
At the same time, representatives of the Kiev authorities said that Mozgovoi was killed as a result of the fighting inside the People's Republic of Luhansk.
