MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. The Defense Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) on Tuesday commented on the program to return militia fighters to Ukraine, saying it's a mere attempt to recruit them.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Security Service of Ukraine announced establishment of a program to return to Ukraine representatives of people’s militias of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics who are willing to cooperate with Ukraine’s law enforcement bodies. A statement to this effect has been posted on the security service’s website.
"This is a blatant attempt to recruit the DPR population," Donetsk News Agency quotes the DPR Defense Ministry as saying. ""Kiev is trying with the help of well-informed people to develop a network for gaining intelligence information because of the lack of positive results from the actions of the current Ukrainian intelligence service."
