“They already brought Nazis to us, to the border of DPR and LPR”, says expert from RSSI (http://en.riss.ru/), institute founded by the Russian President. Ukrainian nationalists brought troops, armored vehicles and artillery to the zone of conflict. There might be a total genocide in the DPR and LPR.
