The website Liga.Novosti has published a youtube video on its website consisting of a recording by the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) of conversations between separatist rebels in Ukraine, and also between a rebel leader and a regular Russian army general concerning the situation on the ground. In the second part of the video, the rebel leader admits that of a force of 1,176 fighters, only 35 are “civilians” (i.e. – not regular Russian army soldiers)…

The SBU has published a new interception of conversations between rebels. Promulgated on record (from 2:37), the commander of the Cossack group of terrorists of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR) Pavel Dryomov in a telephone conversation with Major General of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Sergei Kuzovlyov (callsigns: Tambov, Ignatov) reports on the number of personnel in illegal formation.
“Sergei Yurievich, I am reporting on staff. The total number at the moment: 1,176 – 35 of them civilians. This is without “dead souls” – those who are in there. I verified this myself, everything is complete… everything is ready, we can even arrange the construction of the regiment completely, if necessary,” said Dryomov to his Russian curator.
Kuzovlyov told him that he would be with him “to check, look and consider everything.”
