"At the same time, according to available information, there is an evergrowing contradiction between the field fighters and the leadership of the so-called republics. The discords usually occur among them due to money and ways to earn it. The militants from the 15th territorial defense battalion had repeatedly terrorized local businessmen Brianka. In order to somehow pacify the criminals, pseudo law enforcers from Luhansk came to Brianka accompanied by an Omega special forces unit. This incident has once again fueled a conflict among the non-humans splitting territories for a gain," the press center resumes.
