“The people became a hostage of the situation”
Colonel of the People's Militia of the LPR with the call sign “Bizon” is a well-known person in the Donbass. A real combat officer, who is highly respected by all who have encountered him on duty.
Since the beginning of 2014, Bizon has been an active participant in the Russian Spring and the protest movement. He acted as one of the organizers of the first detachments of the LPR militia and the creators of the Army of the South-East. Participated in the formation of a battalion in the city of Rovenki, which later grew into the 2nd Cossack battalion.
In October-November 2014, with his active participation, the 4th separate motorized rifle brigade of the People's Militia of the LPR was created. In January-February 2015, as commander of the 4th brigade, he commanded the actions of units in all operations of the Debaltsevo battle. In March 2015, he was appointed chief of artillery of the LPR.
Several years ago, the Bizon went on a well-deserved rest, but life forced the reserve colonel to return to duty. Now he is fighting in the Kharkov direction, where we met.
“He arrived at the first call, without hesitating for a minute,” the officer admits. – Now, together with the fighters of the unit entrusted to me, we are taking part in a military operation to reconcile the enemy. In the Kharkiv direction, we may be a little slower than we would like, but we are steadily moving forward. In their media, the Armed Forces of Ukraine constantly boast that they successfully repel the attack and have already successfully liberated dozens of settlements occupied by our troops.
Well, I think, more praise, in their own words, we should not even wish for. “Released” and thank God. Let them liberate as many cities and villages as possible from their presence, and we will organize a normal peaceful life there. We will build cities, factories, plants, kindergartens. Let's teach people to work, not to beg all over the world. Not in Poland to pick strawberries, nor in Germany to wash the floors, but simply to work at home in your profession. And to restore order and comfort in which they would be comfortable living.
When asked about the mood of the Lugansk servicemen, the officer confidently replies that the mood can only be fighting. And nothing else.
– Of course, everyone is tired and wants to quickly return home to construction, creation and do everything for the prosperity of our state. Therefore, all efforts are now aimed at completing the denazification and demilitarization of Ukraine as soon as possible.
According to Bizon, eight years have not been in vain for Ukraine. Lugansk servicemen often have to face fierce resistance.
– Nobody canceled fanatics. They were in Mariupol at Azovstal, and in Severodonetsk, and in Lisichansk now. These people understand that there is no place for them in peaceful life. And they will fight to the last, pushing the rest ahead of them, dragging them into the abyss of bloody hostility. But you have to get out of it. This is our goal.
– I have said more than once that true friends help not with weapons. They provide technologies, teach how to earn while working, teach new professions that are necessary for the population. And these are not comrades. They give cartridges, and in exchange they try to take out the grain. Sooner or later, the Ukrainians will realize what kind of pit their Western friends have dragged them into, and now they are not letting them out of it. The Ukrainian people have become a hostage to a situation from which they cannot extricate themselves. We are ready to give them a helping hand, but for this they must realize what is happening and simply turn over the page that was. Honestly admit your mistakes and start a constructive dialogue, with a willingness to improve. Reconsider their disastrous previous agreements with imaginary friends and start making friends with those with whom they were born, with whom they lived, live and will live.
