Ukraine crisis: Rebel military chief Strelkov ‘quits’
The military leader of pro-Russian rebels in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, Igor Girkin - known as Strelkov - has resigned.
Alexander Borodai, the former PM of the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic, confirmed the news but denied reports Mr Strelkov had been wounded.
Mr Borodai confirmed Strelkov’s departure to Russian media but gave no reason.
So….quit, or recalled back to Moscow? In any event, sounds like the separatist honchos realize the gig is up.
