Militants of the "DNR" in the occupied territory are not respected by both the "official" authorities and local residents.

He admitted that they go to the "people's militia" solely for the sake of earning money, and the ideological "militias" have already left the ranks of the illegal armed formations. "The guys were disappointed, some left, others were told to leave… (Those who have nowhere to go stayed, they need to feed their families. Where do they pay money? Only in the army", - the militant told. At the same time, most of the "recruits" prefer to "fight" in the rear, rather than on the front line. Moreover, the attitude to the military in the "DNR", according to "Marshal", is extremely negative on the part of residents of the occupied Donbass.
