The commander with the call sign “Veterok” (Breeze) continue to report to insurgents that she remains in the Russian hospital.
The former “L\DPR” insurgent, the legendary commander of the tank crew Svetlana Dryuk with the call sign “Veterok” has defected to Ukraine and is now cooperating with the Ukrainian counterintelligence.
TSN reports that the heroine of the film “Opolchenochka” (The She-Militant) revealed a possibility of Russian large-scale offensive against Ukraine.
Svetlana went a long way from being a nurse to the commander of the regiment. Ukrainian military conducted a jewelry operation to smuggle her from the insurgent-controlled territories.
Literally until the day TSN released this report, “Veterok” continued to tell insurgents that she remains in Rostov on personal business. For several months she sent “selfies” from the territory of Ukraine and convinced that she was in Russia.
“So far, according to legend, I’m in a hospital in Russia,” said Svetlana.
In the “DPR” she received positions in the jet division during the storming of Debaltseve, in the “Cheburashka” battalion and in the notorious “Devyatka”. The peak of her career was the command of the “Eleventh regiment”, the most combat-ready unit of the insurgents.
“They tell me, they say, you fought, you killed people. Yes, in the fourteenth year I became the chief of staff of the division. I do not excuse myself, it was just that time, and I was doing what I was told,” the woman said.
In Ukraine, she had a friend from among the officers of the special services, who played a significant role in Svetlana’s defection to the Ukrainian side.
“I have here, I hope, a friend who is much closer to me. He is an employee of the special services. And the attitude of all the guys who take part in my present fate is very different from what I saw there. I do not regret it,” she said.
Svetlana also “leaked” the most important information about the “Prizrak” tank to the Ukrainian military. This vehicle and another seven tanks were destroyed by Ukrainian soldiers by using tips provided by “Veterok”.
The woman has information about 30 Russian military personnel whom Russia sent to kill Ukrainians to fan the flames of war in Donbas. Svetlana is ready to testify about this in The Hague tribunal.
“When they come to us, they (Russians) immediately sign an order, according to which they have no right to communicate with us, the natives, only in the line of duty. They cannot communicate with women, whom they despise greatly,” says Svetlana.
In her high position, she gained access to a secret algorithm by which the Russian army is going to invade Ukrainian territory. In every military unit of the “DPR”, there is a personnel reception point. And there are already prepared cover documents for each of the Russian soldiers who will be brought under the guise of mobilized local workers. On the basis of one “DPR” regiment, in a matter of hours, three Russian should be deployed. In the scale of the entire Donbass region, it is about hundreds of thousands of soldiers.
“And all Russian soldiers will be listed as local natives. Three parts are made from each regiment – if there are two thousand people in the regiment, and then six thousand Russians will enter,” the woman said.
She added that she was ready to fight for Ukraine in the event of large-scale Russian aggression.
