"Because of bad conditions of service in Russian occupation troops, it is worsened the manning issue. Considering the decreasing of a number of Russian mercenaries and increasing a number of servicemen who wish to rip up a contract with Russian command, it is planned to conduct conscription on the occupied territories of Donbas in spring of 2016," the report says.

According to intelligence reports, cash security of the Russian servicemen in some units in the occupied territory of Donbas is five times higher than the salary of local militants.
