Ukrainian traitor appointed Russian National Guard chief in Crimea

Former Ukrainian colonel Stepan Gaidarzhyisky, who switched sides and joined Russia after it annexed Crimea, has been appointed the chief of the Kremlin’s recently-formed National Guard on the Crimean peninsula.

Prior to the appointment Gaidarzhyisky was promoted to the rank of major general of the internal troops of the Russian Interior Ministry.

In February 2016 Ukrainian prosecutors initiated a criminal investigation against the former colonel, suspecting him of treason.
