"Saboteurs conceal their presence. They won't admit they are professional soldiers. For example, they use chevrons of Don Cossack troops. They normally fight under the guise of such units. But I think it is no secret these are Russians who oppose ATO forces in the Donbas," the press officer remarked.Источник: https://en.censor.net.ua/n398997
