"The first group consisted of Russian contract soldiers, equipped with standard equipment and weapons. The second group was made up of Russian mercenaries, uniformed as fighters from the [Donetsk People's Republic], travelling in civilian vehicles," he said.

"Intensive repairs of the militants’ damaged military equipment continue in Donetsk, organized with the help of specialists who arrived from Russia," Tymchuk said.

"At least three such [repair workshops] have been established on the basis of industrial enterprises in the city. As of today, about 15 units of military hardware are being repaired there."
