May I ask from where are these Mercenaries from, and why they are fighting. I've heard nothing other than Georgia, Russia, and two breakaway Provence's. Nothing of armed foreign nationals fighting Russian troops for high profit. Unless our cultural differences cause me to read this incorrectly. When you say attacked refugees, do you mean that unarmed fleeing civilians where directly assaulted after it was known that they where unarmed and non-combatants? Could you provide a link to a story about it? You see here in the US our reporters are having a difficult time getting to the refugees to interview them and get there side of the story because Russian Authorities have been arresting them, according to MSNBC.
