“The so-called people’s mayor Ponomaryov has been removed from office for conducting an activity incompatible with the goals and objectives of the civilian administration. I cannot say more for now,” Strelkov wrote on his Facebook page.

According to some reports, Ponomaryov has been arrested. For instance, DPR first deputy prime minister Andriy Purhin told Interfax: “I, too, have received information about his arrest, this information is not first-hand, I only know that he has been arrested. The reasons for such a decision have not been told to me yet.”
