KIEV, January 21. /TASS/. At least 100 former Georgian servicemen are fighting alongside pro-Kiev forces against self-defense militia in the south-east of Ukraine to regain control over the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), a high-ranking Georgian military official said on Wednesday.
“Our compatriots are taking active part in special-task detachments of the Ukrainian army,” ex-General Giorgi Kalandadze, former chief of the Joint Staff of Georgian Armed Forces, said on air of Rustavi-2 TV channel speaking from Kiev.
According to Kalandadze, Georgian military servicemen are not paid and they are fighting along with pro-Kiev forces as volunteers. He did not specify which duties Georgian troops performed in the Ukrainian military.
According to the data provided by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) last month, over 4,700 people were killed and 10,300 wounded since mid-April last year as a result of armed clashes between Ukrainian troops and local militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions during Kiev’s military operation to regain control over the breakaway territories.
