The ministry said this while commenting on a story in Italian publication Il Giornale that said the mercenaries took part in a military operation as part of the so-called Azov battalion in eastern Ukraine, whose activity is financed and led by Ihor Kolomoisky, a tycoon and Dnipropetrovsk Region governor.
