About 50 mercenaries departed from the Russian city of Yekaterinburg for Ukraine late on March 12, Yekaterinburg news portal 66.ru reported.

They are to join the separatist gang led by Oleksiy Mozgovy, a leader of illegal armed formations in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic and commander of the Prizrak ('Ghost') brigade, the portal said.
