Russian-backed militants are issuing fake passports of occupied Donbas to Russian military officers, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense reported.
“In order to avoid data leak about the Russian military personnel and mercenaries presence in the temporarily occupied territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, these categories of persons, primarily the officers of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, are promptly receiving the passports of the so-called ‘republics,'” said a representative of the press service of the Ministry of Defense, Colonel Maksym Prauta, during a briefing.
