11.09.2015, DPR.

The Ukrainian military continue to join the Donetsk People’s Republic militia, according to the DPR Ministry of State Security spokeswoman Mariya Petrova.

The number of people from the Ukrainian side joining DPR remains constant. This can be explained by the deteriorating political and economic situation in Ukraine. Former soldiers and law-enforcement officers ask the DPR Ministry of State Security for help. They undergo a detailed background check and if it turns out that they have committed no unlawful acts they can stay to live and work in the republic.

The tension between the Ukrainian authorities and the national battalions is rising, according to DPR Defense Ministry.

Yesterday “Right Sector” militants have engaged in an armed clash with the Ukrainian military in Volnovakha.

According to DPR military intelligence, the clash was preceded by an attempt of “Right Sector” militants to dissolve the local council by force in order to secure full control over the region for the head of “State region administration” Valery Lubinets; to take over property and to forge the results of local elections held by Kiev. The Ukrainian military acted against the “coup” on the side of local council members.
