The response, according to the executive and serial entrepreneur, was the dispatch of a reconnaissance drone, followed by shelling. Ahead of his intelligence tip, by Stavnitser’s account, employees remaining at the property at the time of its occupation by Russian forces had been stripped, searched, interrogated and released — still unclothed — into the woods. At that point, Stavnitser, founder and owner of Odesa-based P&O Maritime Ukraine, told Bloomberg News, he instructed his personal security team to provide the recently constructed mansion’s geolocation data to the intelligence service.
