“Main Directorate of Intelligence clearly registered that the number of militants within first and second “army corps” is more than 34 thousand of people”, – he said.
He added that about eight thousand of fighters in the East are the military personnel of the Russian Federation.
According to him, the materials available to the Main Directorate of Intelligence of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry confirmed these data.
“This is a very powerful formation which, according to different estimates, is ready to restore the offensive against the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other security agencies,” – he added.
It should be recalled that militants shelled Ukrainian positions demonstratively in the presence of the Russian “curators”.
