Another Belarusian national is found among leaders of the Maidan protesters.
Mikalai Yakubovich, 40, is a retired policeman who came to Donetsk from Brest (Belarus). He was in Kyiv during the pro-EU protests and was in charge of the 28th hundred of the Maidan protesters. The Belarusian returned to Donetsk and takes part in pro-Ukrainian protests, SP writes.
Mikalai Yakubovich is in charge of the local self-defence forces. He says the organisation has from 50 to100 people in each town of the region and 500 men ready to fight in Donetsk. The journalist stresses the former policeman has a certificate of an advisor of secretary of the Ukrainian Security Council Andriy Parubiy. He also was a commander of a “hundred”, a structural unit of the Maidan protesters in Kyiv. He says his hundred lost two people.
Mikalai Yakubovich talks to the people, who seized the administration building, though their friends and relatives. He says Kyiv guarantees they won't be bring to account for separatism if they leave the building. The activist claims the Donetsk Berkut policemen had the same guarantees in February. He promised it to the Berkut commander and kept his word.
Mikalai Yakubovich says his people are ready for guerrilla warfare if Russian troops appear in the region.
