In the Russian-occupied Donbas, local draft offices and the “Prizrak”[Ghost] Brigade are recruiting “volunteers” to be sent to Belarus, a rights watchdog reports.

Male recruits aged 18 to 55 are offered 30,000 rubles or $400 plus daily expenses during the deployment, according to the Eastern Human Rights Group.

At least three buses carrying recruits have already set off for the Russian-Belarusian border after bringing militants from the occupied Donbas to Russia via the sectors of border beyond Ukrainian government control, the NGO wrote on Facebook.
