UKRAINE – In the large cities of Donbass, controlled by the Kiev Junta, FRN has been made aware that there is presently a campaign to concentrate fighting groups out of Ukrainian nationalist formations. This was disclosed at a briefing in Donetsk, and made public by the head of the press service of the People’s Militia of the DPR, Captain Daniil Bezsonov .

“According to our data, despite the ban on the presence of nationalists in the occupation zone, gangs from the Ukrainian voluntary army and other Nazi gangs are again gathering in the large regional centers of the Donetsk region,” DAN news agency quoted him as saying.

The captain said that at the moment the concentration, recruitment and organization of fighting groups is taking place in Mariupol, Artemovsk, Konstantinovka, Krasnoarmeysk, Volnovakha and Kurakhovo. The recruitment campaign is carried out in part by SMS-text message with the requirement for men of fighting age to report, starting from the beginning of the martial law, with directions to arrive at the designated places under threat of punitive measures if one fails to appear for duty. 

“According to our data, radical activists are planning to be used as “barrage detachments” behind the backs of the militants of the armed formations of Ukraine in order to keep servicemen in the zone of operation of the combined forces,” the representative of the People’s Militia added.

These nationalist formations are being brought in from the west of Ukraine, and are being used to enforce the conscription call being made, under the mandate of martial law. Among their duties, FRN has been made aware, is to make house-visit to men of fighting age who have received the SMS-text message. Private cellular phone carriers are ordered to hand over address and contact information of men of fighting age – 18-55 – to representatives of the neo-nazi brigade commanders, so that the house-visit can be made.

The second duty of the neo-nazi formations will occur when the orders to attack are given.

Neo-nazi formations – infamously the mislabeled Donbass Battalion (as it is comprised of Galicians shipped in from the far west of the country) – will be used to force the low-morale regular army forces forward, and will have the right to shoot at UAF forces attempted to retreat without orders, under dereliction of duty and treason laws.

Earlier, FRN reported that in the Donetsk People’s Republic people expect an increase in tension along the entire line of demarcation against the background of the introduction of martial law by Kiev. At the same time, the morale of the Ukrainian troops remains low — desertion continues from the units .
