“Today very many questions are asked how this could have happened that the DPR army grew from scattered guerrilla units in a strong military organisation which can not only resist Ukrainian armed forces, but also defeat them on the battlefield,” Zakharchenko said, adding that “Kiev and the West stated repeatedly about Russian military invasion to justify somehow massive defeats which Ukrainian army has been suffering already for several months.
Zakharchenko said that many retired Russian servicemen were struggling among volunteers. “Current servicemen are also fighting in our ranks, as they came to us to struggle for our freedom instead of their vacations. This is characteristic only for Russians,” he said, recalling about dramatic events in Serbia in the late 1990s.
The DPR prime minister said that Russian volunteers “unfortunately sustained some casualties“.
