The defense of Rubizhne continues/vchaspik
Even in the first days of the full-scale Russian invasion, Sergey Hortiv, the head of the city, disappeared from Rubizhne. Recently it turned out that he went over to the side of the occupier.
However, according to the head of the Lugansk regional military administration, Sergei Gaidai, the ex-mayor has no authority, so his betrayal will not affect the defense of the city.
Gaidai stressed that our defenders are not going to surrender, and the positions remain the same as before the announcement of the news regarding Hortiv's betrayal.
Part of the city is controlled orcs, some of our defenders and the city are not given up. I haven’t talked to the mayor of Rubizhne for a long time, he disappeared as soon as the full-scale war began, but I know that he allegedly wanted to “hand over the keys to the city,” Sergei Gaidai said.
Sergey Gaidai added that 31 Rubizhne passed into military administration, so the former mayor has no powers.
In addition, the head of the UVA noted that he was not particularly interested in the future of Hortiv.
The fate of this mayor is not very interesting to me, but I think that it will be sad. He has already worked out material, he cannot surrender the city, and no one keeps the traitors for a long time, – Gaidai summed up.
In conclusion, he expressed the hope that very soon Rubizhne would be completely under the Ukrainian flag.
Pay attention: earlier we talked about Hortiv's defection to the side of the aggressor and his lies to the Russian media.
