Course believe Russian and Russian mercenaries and the bars on the Donbass.Is their going to kill her?Just a question I want to ask the politicians: "Who benefits?"and who started this game? ". It's a pity the children who die for nothing.I have already answered this your question.
Question does not apply to the facts, it is for the "faith".In this case - a personal opinion.
My opinion is - no, they're not fighting.I, as a professional soldier in the past, can be distinguished (according to obtained even by Ukrainian media reports), fighting the regular army of the "guerrilla" (in a good way).
Well, I add that my opinion coincides with statement the International Red Cross.
This means that it is a civil war and not about her participation in the "third" parties.
Volunteers who are fighting in the ranks of the militias are there in private, even if they had or have at least some relation to the Russian army.The same can be said about the volunteers from other countries (Serbia, France, Spain, Argentina and even the United States), which often are professional soldiers.
It depends on what you mean by Russian soldiers.Soldier regular Russian armiiot RF MOD or MIA there just is not.Peacekeeping troops from the Russian Federation, too, were not introduced.Maybe, but this is only my assumption, in Ukraine there are representatives of the FSB, but few of them and they are directly in hostilities do not accept.There are only mercenaries who voluntarily enrolled in the militia and fight anyone for money, some for the idea, who loves the thrill.Such there is enough, and not only from Russia.Volunteers from Russia, too, can be called the Russian soldiers and their pobratimov- Russian with Ukrainian passports.
Regarding "overcome Donbass".Svidomo Ukrainians in one voice trumpeting that Donbass subsidized region that Donbass unprofitable that coal profitable pokkupat in Poland. .. Why do they then come to the Donbass?Slaves save.Donbass Ukrainian patriots called neinache how Lugandon and Daunbass.what great fans of Bandera and Shukhevych these worthless land, where, according to them, one lives not worthy of cattle?And, mind you, are fighting there, volunteers from the western lands.And in regard to the Russian army - groups UNA UNSO fought in Chechnya (Ukrainian Nationalists).Out of great love for the brotherly Chechen people?No.Just out of hatred for Russia.Then we do not say that in Russia are fighting the Ukrainian military.And in Abkhazia and South Ossetia too.
As a former commander of the operational-dressing platoon honey.Company 2nd Separate Brigade of the People's Militia LNR (by the way, is now the Guards, was the anniversary of the brigade 11.26.15) reports.Regular Russian troops on the territory of Donbass was not there.The volunteers, about 30% was in the February 2015 From the figure?The sick and wounded in the wards med.roty, outpatient reception in the middle of Russia were third (personal observation).Russian passports in Lugansk became not curiosity.From October to November, established a contract army.The contract is signed for one year.Why November anniversary?first salary was paid in November 2014.At the beginning of military doctors in the medical instructors.Rothe was.Duplicate command structure, from the commander of honey.company.Perhaps a similar way and in other divisions.Military equipment from Russia, too, did not have to brag.For example, the column in the course of their 10 tanks arrived in Lugansk only 8 technicians in the Rostov region.We went to get "their".There were volunteers from Latvia, Kazakhstan.What was my surprise when at the door of the room there was a Negro.I even asked it not from Zimbabwe.He explained that in Latvia, but for a long time in Lugansk went through Kiev.Now the number of Russians dramatically reduced.Instructors, personnel officers do their job.Active hostilities there.To fight and just serve in the army, are two different things.
Accepted fact.Just do not confuse the troops, armed forces and Russian soldiers - volunteers who are here in private.This " little" different things. And yes, indeed, and there are Russian soldiers and the German. ..
Let me tell you so : Russian soldiers ( in the sense of Russian soldiers ), in the Ukraine is.
But Russian soldiers ( in the sense of conscripts ) and regular military units of the Russian army in the Ukraine.And even if they have, the Ukraine if there are NATO troops.
See, every war is a media war and also, especially in the current media development.
If the West recognizes that they are first introduced to the Ukraine of its military, then Russia will not remain on the sidelines, or may remain ( information warfare after all ).
High-grade military units of the Russian army in the Donbas not.But on the other hand, if I were an officer, I would have asked for a vacation in the Donbass, for the experience of fighting.If a person has decided to devote themselves to defending the homeland, fighting experience is a big plus for his future career.So three months to war God ordered, if you want to grow up to the general and above.And I think (this is my opinion) it encourages the authorities and volunteers take leave and go and they are there.Yes, there is a risk of being killed or wounded, but then you are soldiers and if went to serve in the army.
Not rule out that there are, and reconnaissance and sabotage groups.Helps identify gun emplacements, command posts, and so on.Well, themselves gain experience.
Here only with Russian passports and the Russian form there is exactly no one.
Yet I am sure that all the old stuff like the old T-64 tanks, an art installation to release '90 and other scrap metal from Russia, too, is taking place at the Donbass to help militias.
I'll explain why I think so.Complete form send without air cover - crime.And any military commander would not do it.can go to court for large losses.So it was in Chechnya.When a military convoy was sent to replace another unit without air cover and the whole column gouging.Then, three officers were tried for such gullibility.But the Russian aviation Ukrane was not, then it was not the troops.Career officer is not entitled to a vacation hot spots and "gain experience".Becausehis death could undermine the combat capability of its units.If such a "clever man" caught up to the commanders of the general, he is not exactly will grow. - More than a year ago firstly a person falls under the definition of a mercenary, that is punishable under the Criminal Code
