It was finally reported who would lead legendary “Sparta” battalion after Arsen Pavlov’s death. 

Motorola’s first deputy and right-hand man Vladimir Zhoga aka Vokha was announced to be new battalion commander. 

Vladimir told that his candidacy had been chosen unanimously and he was ready to continue Motorola’s work and fight.

«Our loss is irreplacable but we have to carry on», he told journalists. 

The new commander emphasized that he would disappoint those who expected that Sparta surrenderring their positions.
