The RF IC launched the first ever criminal case on mercenarism. According to the official representative of the department, Vladimir Markin, a case was initiated against the neo-Nazi Roman Zheleznov, known by the nickname Zuhel.
The investigation believes that on July 9, Zheleznov arrived in Ukraine and enlisted as a volunteer in the battalion "Azov" fighting on the side of Kiev. The Russian has been trained in the training center "Azov" and is currently serving in the Donbas as a member of this unit.
Foreign mercenaries fighting on the side of KievThe Russian media has repeatedly reported that mercenaries from European countries and the United States are fighting on the side of the Kiev security officials. We are talking about representatives of private military companies.According to the Russian press, their number is about two to three hundred people.
Foreigners in the composition of the fighters of New RussiaWestern countries and Kiev are convinced that on the side of the so-called Novorossia a large number of fighters from Russia are fighting. According to the Russian side, these people, who are often professional soldiers, are on “leave”. A large resonance was caused by the funeral in the Pskov village of several Russian paratroopers, allegedly killed in Ukraine. The Pskov deputy Lev Shlosberg, who investigated the circumstances of their death, was severely beaten by unknown persons.
In the end, the story of the funeral of such a volunteer was shown on Russian television, that is, the fact of the presence of Russians in the ranks of the DPR and LNR militia was recognized by Russia.However, the leaders of the self-proclaimed republics have repeatedly confirmed this. The editors of uznayvse.ru believe that the UK is unlikely to start criminal cases against any of these people, regardless of whether they receive a material reward.
