In the Donetsk theatre of opera and ballet the farewell ceremony for the Hero of the DPR, the legendary militia commander Arseny Pavlov, “Motorola”, took place. The coffin with the body of the Colonel was already delivered in place, and earlier the soldiers of the “Sparta” battalion said goodbye to the commander privately.

The entrance to the theater was equipped with a metal detector, so all those who came to the funeral event had to surrender their weapons.

In the theater building thousands of people gathered who want to personally pay their last respects to the Hero of the DPR.

The footage shows that the queue wishing to say goodbye to Motorola stretched from the theater building on the main street of Donetsk — Artem street. Due to today’s funeral ceremony the movement of vehicles on streets adjacent to the “Donbass Opera” was blocked.

The Deputy commander of the operational command of the DPR Eduard Basurin, in a conversation with journalists, stressed that security at the memorial event was ensured by all law enforcement agencies of the Republic.

“A huge crowd of people came to the farewell ceremony to Arsen Pavlov. So we paid the greatest attention to safety. All power structures of the state were engaged. The Armed Forces, Interior Ministry, Defence Ministry, Ministry of Emergency Situations — they’re all involved,” said Basurin.

“This tragedy has united the people. And if the Ukrainian authorities wanted to bring us down, they have nothing. People have rallied even stronger, and all who came to say farewell to the hero is confirmation of this,” he said during the ceremony.
