These include airborne, motorized rifle, BARS, territorial troops, and army corps of people's militias from the occupied territories. Various PMCs are also sent there, including Fakel, Veterans, Patriot, and others. They also used Storm Z company personnel who have issues with the law as an emergency recruitment,” the spokesman for Ukraine’s Eastern Military Grouping said.
