"There were plenty volunteers striving to fusillade us but the General ordered not to touch us. The order restrained them. The insurgents' discipline is at high level," another soldier said.

"There were no physical coercion but only moral one. They performed "political lessons", asked why we came to the eastern Ukraine," one of the soldiers added.

"However, we have seen that there is no unity in the camp, there is a split. The militants mercenaries want to get out of Ukraine and the local militants understand that will have to stand trial," one of the fighters noted.
