This was announced by the ATO press center, Censor.NET reports.
"Over a thousand Russian soldiers left Ukraine," the message reads.
According to the headquarters, instead of active units of Russian army, self-proclaimed republics attempt to create their own security agencies. For this purpose, the terrorist leaders announced creation of the 1st regiment of the internal troops of the 'DPR' in Donetsk.
"Given the 'style' of the terrorists' behavior towards the locals, one can imagine how they will 'protect' the 'law' on the controlled territories," the press center of ATO noted.
