MOSCOW, September 11. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) plans to establish a paramilitary security service tasked with guarding railroad hubs, DPR transport minister Semyon Kuzmenko told Donetsk News Agency on Friday.

"We are coordinating the issue of setting up a paramilitary security service that will protect our infrastructure. We are currently working on it together with the defense ministry," Kuzmenko said. "They will guard our strategic hubs — Debaltsevo, Yasinovataya, Ilovaisk. This includes guarding bridges and countering Ukrainian sabotage attempts," he added.

The paramilitary security service will start operating after DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko signs a decree on establishing the service.
