On the temporarily occupied territories by pro-Russian militants, people further become disillusioned with the policy of the "Russian world" stubbornly forced by the leaders of self-proclaimed republics, ATO press center reports.

Thus, the common soldiers and representatives of pseudo - law enforcement agencies of the so-called DPR and LPR directly become outraged upon low level of funding and operation environment in which they pass the "service." Therefore, in order to earn a bit of extra money for living, mercenaries are often selling their own weapons and ammunition.

At the same time, leaders of so-called Luhansk People`s Republic recognizing that in the region there are many armed people which are under no control, plan to consolidate handlers from Russian Federation upon their law enforcement agencies.

Earlier in ATO press center reported that residents of Luhansk region resent 6% tax, which customers of Ukrainian banks are required to pay for cash withdrawal at the territory controlled by militants.

In Donetsk, there are serious problems at the petrol stations. Despite the fact that for the needs of militants there is enough amount of fuel, it is still selled to locals with significant extra charges. In addition, at the gasoline retail stations petrol is not always enough and it is of extremely poor quality.
