More than 400 volunteers from Russia have joined the LPR People's Militia in February, the Defence said.
"In February alone, after the threat of Ukrainian invasion of Donbass augmented, more than 400 volunteers from Russia have joined the LPR People's Militia. Volunteers from other former Soviet Republics are still arriving," the report reads.
"The LPR People's Militia has intensifies training in view of the growing Ukrainian threat."
"Additional second-line units are being formed with the beginning of the mobilization, the combat training programme has been approved, as well as supplies and technical support programme," the report reads.
The LPR ordered a full military mobilization on February 19, as the security situation in the region degrades dramatically, and becomes reminiscent of the worst times of 2014-2015. All males aged 18-55, on military registration, eligible for military registration, or in reserve are to be enrolled in the LPR People's Militia.
The LPR Head Leonid Pasechnik signed a decree on February 21 allowing voluntarily mobilization of males older than 55. *t
