"The militants in telephone conversations intercepted by intelligence agencies are cynically discussing how they shell civilians in Donbas and put the blame for this on the ATO forces. In these conversations they talk about deeds which the DPR and the LPR and their leaders are actually involved in. In addition, the leaders of these organizations are comfortable to recognize that they receive military equipment and reinforcements from Russia," Perebiynis said.
