On May 9, a 10-year-old girl was awarded with the Medal of Honour For Combat Services of Novorossiya.
Militants of the so-called DPR awarded the 10-year-old militant Bogdana Neshcheret, whose medals had been allegedly stolen by the leader of the so-called LPR Igor Plotnitskiy. On May 9, a 10-year-old girl was awarded with the Medal of Honour For Combat Services of Novorossiya.
'To stop any possible suspicions on the fact the young 'ghost' received the award undeservedly, we’d like to provide some lines from the decree on awarding: 'award Bogdana Romanovna Neshcheret with the Medal of Honour For Combat Services of Novorossiya for the strengthening of combat readiness and morale of the unit,' the militants’ decree reads.
Bogdana Neshcheret became famous after separatists’ websites posted her poems dedicated to the late leader of The Ghost gang Aleksey Mozgovoy. The girl joined his gang and received a callsign 'Dotsya'. Soon after the girl started to become more and more popular, she was deprived of the medals, which had been given to her for participation in promotional campaigns. This happened after the statement that was made by a resident of Sochi Olga Zahran, who called herself 'the Vice President of the Charity Foundation of international soldiers.'
Zahran make a video where she claimed that Bogdana Neshcheret had written no poems at all and that the girl was mentally disabled and couldn’t neither write, nor speak correctly.
At the same time, a number of separatists’ organizations stood for Dotsya including a scandalous Luhansk Guard that positioned itself as opposition to the current LPR leader Igor Plotnitskiy.
On May 4, the leader of Luhansk Guard Anastasiya Pyaterikova reported in Vkontakte that the LPR’s Ministry of Internal Affairs had carried out a search in Bogdana’s flat. Moreover, prosecutors came to her school to interrogate the fourth-grader.
