"A Somalia gang militant has been detained. He joined the "DPR" for food and money. He was previously convicted and has been the gang's member since August 2014," he said.
Abroskin stressed: "Some facts from the story.
"The majority of them, our citizens having turned into militants, have relatives, who moved to the territory controlled by Ukraine.
"Militant gangs are joined by Russian mercenaries. For example, Somalia gang consists of locals - 60% and mercenaries - 40% including those from Russia.
"Locals are being prepared by the so-called "advisers" - Russian military who come to the occupied territory to train militants. In late November last year, after another training, one of the companies of Somalia gang left for Rostov-on-Don, Russia for tanks, which had to be demothballed prior to moving to Donetsk. The militants did shooting practice there as well. On the way back, near Kuibysheve, they met several KAMAZ trucks carrying tanks for militants in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions."
