Syrian fighters are promised that they will carry out police functions in the occupied territories, but in fact they are involved in hostilities.
Russian command in Syria was instructed to send up to 300 militants to the war in Ukraine daily.
It is reported by the General Directorate intelligence Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
“The command of the Russian military base Khmeimim was instructed to send up to 300 militants to Ukraine daily,” the report says.
At the same time, on March 15, 150 mercenaries were sent to Russia from the Khmeimim military base (in Syria) to participate in hostilities against Ukraine.
“According to the military intelligence of Ukraine, in the near future it is planned to transfer weapons, military equipment and other resources from Syria to Russia and Belarus to provide for the Russian occupying forces. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad promised to provide Russia with 40,000 militants for the war in Ukraine,” the scouts say.
“During recruitment, mercenaries are promised that they will perform exclusively police functions to restore order in the occupied territories, that is, purely police functions. But recently, information has begun to spread among mercenaries about direct participation in hostilities against the Ukrainian army. This has significantly reduced ” the fighting spirit of the “Syrians,” the report says.
At the same time, more than 30 militants recently arrived at the Khmeimim military base from Russia, who were injured in battles against the defenders of Ukraine.
“This negatively affected the moral and psychological state of other mercenaries and led to the refusal of some of them to participate in hostilities. Among the Syrian militants, there were even cases of self-mutilation. Some of the mercenaries consider being sent to Russia and Belarus as a chance for further desertion and illegal migration to the EU countries “, – said in intelligence.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian intelligence officers said that the Russian Federation opened 14 mercenary recruitment centers in Syria and trains fighters from Libya.
