A commission from Russia is working in the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas, the head of the Information Resistance group, Dmytro Tymchuk, has said.

"A commission consisting of representatives of the staff of the 8th Combined Arms Army of the Russian Armed Forces has been working in the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas since August 1 this year in order to control the measures being taken, as well as checking the condition, accounting and storage of weapons and military equipment, material and technical facilities, staffing and combat readiness of the units of the 'first army corps of DPR' and the 'second army corps of LPR,'" reads the statement.

It notes that according to the preliminary data of the commission's work, an extremely low level of moral and psychological state of personnel was detected in the "9th separate assault rifle regiment of the marine corps of the first army corps of DPR" (Novoazovsk). The causes include the massive and systematic use by the "regiment" personnel of alcohol and narcotic drugs (cannabis). As a result, the commander of the "9th separate assault rifle regiment," the commander of the "first army corps of DPR", as well as a deputy commander of the "second army corps of LPR" for educational work were dismissed from their posts and brought to criminal liability.
