No evidence given.

Previously, the Ukrainian Armed Forces press office emphasized that there are no foreigners in the war zone in eastern Ukraine, only exclusively Ukrainian military are deployed there.

Pro-Kremlin sources repeatedly accuse foreign military of taking part in the war in Ukraine without providing any evidence, see dozens of cases in our database. Earlier, Polish Ministry for National Defence  and Lithuania's Armed Forces have confirmed that their soldiers have only delivered trainings to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and do not take part in combat actions.
