Moreover, some strangers were dark-skinned, so it was difficult to call them Ukrainians or vice versa - Russians.
Also talked about the presence in the region of mercenaries from the private American army Academi (the former Blackwater).
Local residents said that the military - from about 25 to 40 years of age, moved by companies from two to five people, behave quite freely.
"The group includes representatives of different countries with their military emblems and insignia: the Baltic countries, Poland, Hungary, France, there are representatives of the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States," wrote in social networks.

On another video, one of the supporters of the Donetsk People's Republic declared that 450 Don Cossacks and about 300 volunteers from Chechnya had arrived in the Red Liman.
In turn, the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov on his page in instagram noted that the Chechens have no purpose to fight in Ukraine, but they are not indifferent to the events in our country.
"There are no Chechen battalions in Ukraine, the ruling junta is trying to write off its punitive operations in Slavyansk for the presence of Chechen battalions among the defenders of the city." If they were there, I assure you, those who make such statements would have fled not only from Slavyanska, but even from Kiev, which, in fact, they do not control, I ask Arsen Avakov and others to calm down, who see in every swarthy Chechen man and shudder when they say this word. "If a man is swarthy, this does not mean that he is necessarily a Chechen We should he needs to know that the Chechens are blue-eyed, blonde and redheaded, as they say, fear has big eyes, "he said.

"We do not conduct any separate military operations either in the east or in the south of Ukraine.The antiterrorist operation to eliminate the anti-state uprising is carried out by the Antiterrorist Center, which includes various state power structures.The right sector assists state power structures, provides material and technical support, intelligence information.The members of the Right sector did not have unregistered weapons.The latest events in Donetsk and Odessa showed that the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other force division can not be guarantors of the country's territorial integrity is necessary to intensify the work on the formation of volunteer units "-. he said.
