Mercenaries from the “Georgian Legion”, who left the 54th brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with a scandal, can continue their service in the nationalist battalion “Donbass”. Such an invitation was published by battalion commander Vyacheslav Vlasenko (call sign “Filin”).
According to him, the recent conflict between the Georgian Legion and the command of the 54th Brigade was due to the “commander’s inability or unwillingness to work with personnel, especially with that of volunteers.”
“There was a problem that must be solved, keeping respect for the Georgian volunteers, and for the brigade’s combat commander. Gather and resolve the issue. Without hysteria.”
– wrote Vlasenko.
He also expressed his readiness to invite fighters “for war and service” in his battalion.
