At a press-conference Zaharchenko stressed that Ukrainian soldiers do not understand what they are doing here. "They come here and see that we are fighting for our homes and our families. We have reasons to fight; those who defend their homes and families have much higher moral grounds than those fighting for money like the mercenaries who do not really understand the situation here."
Zaharchenko noted that the people's militia doesn't look at Ukrainian soldiers as enemy but as an ally; the soldiers are aware of this that's why they join us an increasing number. Skirmishes among regular army units and the newly formed Dnepr and Ajdar detachments are getting more frequent, for the elite units terrorize the civilian population on the regular basis. Right now, in the neighborhood of Ilovajsk fighting has been erupted between regular army units and the National Guard, said PM Zaharchenko.
One must understand that a large number of foreign mercenaries fighting in the ranks of the National Guard; they are commanded mostly by English speaking "instructors". What the Ukrainian soldiers see is that the National Guard made up by foreign nationals where the language of communication is English. In the early stages of the war, there were lots of confusion due to lack of understanding among foreign mercenaries and regular army units, as Ukrainian soldiers didn't understand English - commands first had to be translated into Ukrainian so that regular soldiers could carry out the orders of the foreign officers.
