ATO Headquarters tells how much Russian mercenaries are paid in SyriaMercenaries in Syria are paid ten times more then they receive while serving in the army of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR), Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) Deputy Chief of Staff Colonel Konstantyn Sokolov said at a press conference in Kramatorsk, according to 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"It is reported that young recruits from the local population are joining training centers of the 'first army corps.' As part of a large-scale propaganda aimed at mercenaries in Syria, currently the average monthly payment offered in the territories of "DPR" and "LPR" is RUB 200,000 , as compared to RUB 20,000 offered for service in the "DPR" and "LPR" armed forces," Sokolov said.

According to Sokolov, private military companies from Russia have been setting up their recruiting centers in the "DPR"- and "LPR"-controlled territories.

As reported earlier, according to the Ukrainian Intelligence, a campaign to recruit "volunteer units" for the war in Syria is underway in Donbas.
