As reported by Censor.NET citing TSN, the combat-experienced Italians have arrived in the Donbas at their own expense and themselves bought the necessary gear.
The volunteers say they are here to protect Europe from the aggressor. More Italians, hired by pro-Russian organizations in Italy, are fighting alongside militants, they said.
"My good friend is fighting against me and he's now on that side, three kilometers away from here. His motivation is money," Donini says.
Interestingly, the biggest nightmare of the Kremlin propagandists - a Jewish company - is fighting against the Russian aggressor in the Donbas. Its soldiers have been on the front line for two years now, the TV story reports.
