Leader of the Polish ultra right organization Falanga Bartosz Bekier told Ren-TV that many Polish national were fighting in Ukraine. "Many Poles are fighting on Kiev’s side in this conflict, it’s true. They go to Ukraine to join volunteer corps as private individuals. But Poland’s official authorities will never confirm this fact," he said.
Francesco Falkone, an Italian mercenary, told Ren-TV he was fighting on Kiev’s side to avenge of his grandfather’s death in WWII. He said he had joined Ukrainian nationalists since he shared their views.
"In late August, we were paid about 300 U.S. dollars. For all previous months. Now however they are paying about 200 U.S. dollars a month, like a local policeman," he told the reporters.
