Militants of the "DNR", who opposed Ukraine on the side of Russian occupiers in 2014 with arms in their hands, cannot rely on any financial assistance from the "republic".

When asked how the "volunteers" who stood up for the "defense" of Donbass in 2014 will be marked and whether any fund will be created to provide real assistance to them, the "DNR" propagandist reported that the "state", of course, could assist, but "people should create these funds themselves". "The man who took arms in 2014 to protect his family, homeland and religion… Do we (the occupation authorities - OstroV), the authorities, now owe him for taking weapons? Then why did he take it for? There is a concept of duty and honor, he did what he had to do! And if you ask for a material consideration for this, then what for you came at all!", - one of the militant leaders explained his position indignantly.
