“My dear citizens, do not be fooled by the sweet promises of foreign intelligence services, do not agree to hire them, do not act as I did, this is very despicable and despicable … I deeply and strongly repent and ask Allah’s forgiveness. The whole society, my relatives, cause this trouble. I ask forgiveness of loved ones with whom I am … Forgive me for my vile act, “said Mihailenko and burst into tears.
