According to Gritsak, “Russia began to create an army corps on the territory of the Rostov region back in December, a citizen of the Russian Federation was appointed as its head.”
He said that "25-30-year-old citizens are being recruited into the corps, and the command is trying to recruit personnel from the citizens of Ukraine."
Gritsak at the same time noted "low morale and reluctance of Ukrainians to fight in the Donbass." Therefore, "the body is completed with those who can be caught," concluded the head of the SBU.
Recall that in the beginning of the month Poroshenko in an interview with the publication Bild declared the “increased danger of open war”. According to him, “there are 8 thousands of Russian military personnel on the territory of Ukraine”, and “military bases are located near the border and permanent exercises are held.”
