Local militants in Donbass aren’t satisfied that they get 5 times less than Russian soldiers. This was announced today at the briefing by the speaker of the Presidential Administration on the ATO Motuzyanik Alexander, - reports the correspondent of OstroV.

"On the occupied territories the dissatisfaction is growing based on the difference of financial support of soldiers of the Armed Forces of Russia in comparison with the staff of occupation troops and members of armed gangs "DPR" and "LPR", - said he.

According to him, in some categories local militants receive 5 times less than the Russian soldiers.

According to the report of the General Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the average monthly military pay of a contractor soldier is up to 12 thousand rubles, while  a soldier of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation receives more than 60 thousand rubles.

"A significant dissatisfaction of the separatists is caused by the considerable difference (in some categories even five times) in military pay between soldiers of the Armed Forces and contractor soldiers of the local population, who are serving in the 1 and 2 AK units", - said the statement.
