MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. The voluntary mobilization into the army of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic has been fulfilled at 110%, DPR’s leader Alexander Zakharchenko said in an interview with the Donetsk news agency on Tuesday.
"At the moment, the number of volunteers is higher than our capacities to arm them. People see what is going on and assess the situation as it is and understand that the war will continue at Kiev’s will. They are defending their land," Zakharchenko said.
Volunteers started being mobilized in the Donetsk republic on February 9. In mid-March, Zakharchenko said every day up to 200 volunteers join the ranks of militias.
More than 4,000 people are ready to fight along with the territorial defence units and form the second defence line of the republic in case of combat actions, the DPR leader said.
