That awkward moment when Donetsk’s pro-Russian leader Pavel Gobarev who vowed to fight Nazis in Ukraine IS discovered to be a Nazi…
Earlier this week pro-Russian protesters under the leadership of Pavel Gubarev, the self-proclamied governor seized several buildings in Donetsk Regional State Administration and raised the Russian flag. During one of the seizures Gubarev put forward a number of demands to the local authorities, including the holding of a referendum on the status of the region.
Russia’s Moscow Times warned that the Russia would not stand by passively “while Russophobic and neo-Nazi gangs hold the people of Crimea, Kharkiv and Donetsk at their mercy.”
