Russian President Vladimir Putin has conferred the rank of Colonel-General on Sergey Kuzovlev, one of the former military commanders in the so-called "Luhansk People's Republic", the unrecognized entity in the Russian-occupied part of Donbas, eastern Ukraine.

Supervising Russian-controlled mercenaries with the self-proclaimed "LPR," Kuzovlev operated under a number of aliases, including "Sergey Yuryevich Ignatov," "Tambov," and "Ignatov," uc.od.ua reports.

It is known that the general earned the promotion for assisting terrorists in waging war on Ukraine's territory, the report reads.

Kuzovlev: Background

On January 6, 2015, the SBU Security Service of Ukraine made public intercepted communications between the so-called "ataman of the Cossack National Guard" Pavel Dryomov and his subordinates. The records made it clear that Major General Kuzovlev, at the direction of Russia's top leadership, was coordinating "LPR" proxy forces' activity and the process of arms and ammo supply.
