Eight militants from the so-called DNR republic of Eastern Ukraine were killed and two others were wounded in Syria. Such data was published by the press service of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine on Facebook.
"Another fact of the participation of servicemen from 9 separate motorized infantry regiment of the Marine Corps (Novoazovsk) 1 AK (Donetsk) as part of the military contingent of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria was confirmed. For example, in Syria, two soldiers of the regiment were killed and injured, including the commander of the mortar division", the report says.
Considering that the dead are not citizens of the Russian Federation, their bodies will be buried in the territory of Syria.
We recall that earlier the press secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov admitted that in Syria, there may be Russian military.
