According to Vadym Skibitsky, Head of Chief Department of Intelligence of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry, about two weeks ago, a group of mercenaries from Northern Caucasus joined Russia-backed militants in Luhansk region. “They joined the 2nd Army Corps of Russia’s Armed Forces, but during drills and combat shakedown, they conflicted with their military management. There are cases of direct disobedience to Russian officers”, he said.  

Skibitsky added that Russian and militant troops are now conducting military rotations in the occupied areas.
