Several hundred foreign fighters were deployed to the line of contact in the Donbass, reporters learned at a briefing with spokesman of the People’s Militia of independant Lugansk People’s Republic, Andrei Marochko.

“According to available information, in the settlements located near the line of contact, several hundred mercenaries from USA, Canada, the Baltic states, Poland and Georgia, armed with small arms and light armored vehicles were deployed”, stated the representative of the People’s Militia.

According to Marochko, placement of field mercenaries are in field camps in these local areas, where foreign military instructors train soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. They are armed with small arms, via NATO’s “unofficial” support.

Marochko said that mercenaries are preparing snipers whom are taught to carry out support in urban environments, as well as training of covert operation groups engaged in sabotage, which are intended to be sent later into the Donbass.
