In 2015 Ukraine said there were 43K fighters on separatists side, and that it included 9K Russian soldiers. Are you claiming all of the separatists are Russians? Not people born in Ukraine? Or that they're all ethnic Russians born in Ukraine?
Yes, I am claiming that forces which are commanded, supplied and maintained by russia are in fact russian forces, not separatists. russia is right now mobilizing people from occupied regions and throwing them on the frontline, they are also separatists?
