The authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic claim  to have evidence that Kiev recruits foreign mercenaries to conduct the special operation in the south-east, Prime Minister of the Donetsk People's Republic, Alexander Borodai said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Judging by the names, the people put down for allowances are obviously of foreign origin. They are Anglo-Saxon. It is not clear - American or Britons. They have snipers; and good ones.

Abducted Girls 7 US Troops: AFRICOM In Disguise - Story About abducted girls cooked up to Justify U.S Troops in Nigeria

Story About abducted girls cooked up to Justify U.S Troops in Nigeria

I am compelled to write this urgently in order to bring your attention to the event surrounding the missing 234 Chibok girls that were allegedly abducted by Boko Haram. Undoubtedly, there are many questions that beg for answers in this abduction. After carrying out some analysis, I came to the conclusion (just like some other people too) that there is a very high probability that the whole story about the abduction was cooked up or well planned in advance by some certail forces in order to descredit Jonathan’s government and justify foreign intervention. It can also not be ruled out that jonathan himself has a hand in the so called kidnapping in order to provide a good excuse for foreign intervention.
