MOSCOW, January 26. /TASS/. Intelligence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has spotted a group of foreign mercenaries arriving to the Donbass’s Volnovakhsky ditrict controlled by Kiev, DPR defense ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin told reporters on Tuesday.
"The arrival of 30 people from a private military company communicating in English was registered in the settlement of Mirnoye in 11 kilometers from the contact line," Donetsk News Agency quoted Basurin as saying.
DPR intelligence repeatedly reported about the presence of foreign mercenaries among servicemen of Ukrainian Armed Forces and in Ukraine’s nationalist battalions.
At the start of October, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada adopted a law "On foreigners undergoing military service in Ukrainian Armed Forces" thus legalizing recruitment of mercenaries.
