A member of the territorial defense of Ukraine, Andrey Gorshkov, nicknamed Batman, who was detained, spoke about how the Service Security of Ukraine (SBU) intended to kidnap the deputy head of Rossotrudnichestvo Natalya Poklonskaya. According to Izvestia, they intended to do this while the ex-prosecutor of Crimea was in the Kherson region.
According to Gorshkov, a certain businessman announced an award for the former deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation if she was delivered to the SBU. The nearest point was in Nikolaev. Batman's task was to check the list of addresses where Poklonskaya could be. He was supposed to inform the Ukrainian security forces about this.
Gorshkov-Batman recalled that criminal cases had been initiated against Poklonskaya in Ukraine. The goal was probably to deliver her to the controlled territory of Ukraine for trial.
Answering the question of why Batman needed to participate in the kidnapping of Poklonskaya, he replied that he was “performing his civic duty.” He did not rule out that, on his tip, Poklonskaya could simply be eliminated. He himself claims that he did not intend to rob or kill her.
In March, Poklonskaya brought food and medicine to the residents of the Kherson region. At the same time, information appeared on the Internet that the Ukrainian businessman and deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksiy Goncharenko promised 100 thousand dollars in social networks for the detention of the ex-deputy. He later deleted his post.
Poklonskaya herself eventually called Goncharenko a swindler. “Don't believe the swindlers. You won't believe how many such “businessmen” I had in the dock,” she pointed out.
