Heroes of no man’s land: fate of the Russian-backed militants
Ukrainians think Donbas militants are thugs and mercenaries. Russians think they are just nobody

Many Russians sigh over the fate of bandits, who first fought on the side of "militants" in the so-called "People's Republics" of occupied Donbas, and then went to get the awards.
The organization of Russians who participated in Donbas hostilities, "Volunteer Union of Donbas," states that there are at least 17 trials of former "militants," who are being prepared for deportation. The others “fighters” might face the same problems.
Russian law provides immigration benefits for the residents of the occupied regions. However, not only the local bandits were attracted by the ability to kill and loot.
Immigrants from other Ukraine’s regions and other former Soviet republics are among the "militants." It is like a criminal Internationale! These people are detained, and after showing the invalid IDs, the deportation process begins immediately.
These "heroes" are trying to convince the judges that they killed "in the name of their country and in the name of Putin." "Volunteer Union of Donbas" protects all these nithings.
The situation is complicated by the fact that among the "militants" there are criminals with an uneven past.
In the occupied territories, the Russian-backed militants are heroes. For Ukraine they are thugs and mercenaries. And for Russia they are just nobody. And this “nobody” most accurately reflects their real status.
