MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. Publication of personal data about Russian air pilots participating in the operation against the Islamic State in Syria on Ukraine’s Mirotvorets (Peacemaker) website in fact signifies that those behind the provocation have teamed up with IS terrorists, polled experts have told TASS. The provocation’s mastermind is Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s interior minister. Just recently he issued a call for publishing the personal data of Russian pilots operating in Syria on the Internet.
The next day the Peacemaker website published information about nine Russian military officers, their ranks ranging from lieutenant to major-general, in three languages – Russian, English and Arabic. It is noteworthy that earlier the same website gained notoriety by disclosing the home addresses of Ukrainian journalist Oles Buzina and Ukrainian parliament member Oleg Kalashnikov. Both would soon be killed near their homes.
The president of the association providing social support for retired military Otechestvo (Fatherland) Air Force Major-General Aleksandr Tsalko, is very articulate and to the point, just as a career military should be. He has told TASS that the call for making public personal data of Russian air pilots in Syria was an “act of meanness,” and that Gerashchenko was a “rascal who will surely wind up badly.” Russia’s Investigative Committee has already launched criminal proceedings against Gerashchenko under the article of the Criminal Code setting punishment “for making public calls for terrorist activity or for public justification of terrorism,” Tsalko recalled. then it’s an act of outrageous meanness – to expose people who are performing their duty and fighting against a menace that threatens the whole world,” Kobaladze said.
And the president of the National Strategy Institute, Mikhail Remizov, believes that the legislation of many countries leaves no room for connivance with terrorism. “This call by an adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry for publishing personal data of Russian air pilots in Syria and the reaction of social networks’ members that followed need close scrutiny by human rights activists. Such action deserves the international community’s condemnation,” Remizov told TASS.
