Ukraine intel reveals details of contracts of Donbas militants in Syria
The pro-Russian militants in the occupied territory of Luhansk region are being recruited to participate in hostilities in Syria, according to the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine.
"The recruitment of personnel to Syria is still taking place in the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk region. The terms of the contract provide for a monthly cash allowance in the amount of $1,400-2,000," the report says.
At the same time, according to the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, a compensation payment to the relatives in case of the death of a soldier will be $14,000. The most interesting part of the contract is that the recruiting side has no obligation to return the dead body.
As UNIAN reported earlier with reference to the Ukrainian Defense Intelligence, the lack of funds made the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces give up hiring personnel on a contract basis (their allowance is about RUB 150,000 per month) for units involved in the fighting in Syria. So the Kremlin is compelled to use regular forces whose salary is up to RUB 85,000.
