Russian military in Donbas inflict injuries on themselves and destroy their own equipment on purpose, informed press service of the Directorate General of Intelligence at the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
“Considering serious casualties, dangers of taking part in military activity and understanding of inevitable punishment for the violations in eastern Ukraine, there’s a mass tendency among Russian military to leave the army. Taking into account, that there is a temporary ban on dismissals, Russian military tend to inflict injuries on themselves and destroy their own military equipment on purpose”, - it is said in the report of Intelligence.
It has been reported earlier, that 14 dead and 19 wounded Russian troopers were delivered to one of Donetsk hospitals.
A special complex of buildings for storing bodies of killed Russian troopers will be constructed in Donetsk. Intelligence assumes, that this way the Russian Federation wants to conceal involvement of Russian soldiers in military operations in eastern Ukraine.
