There is clear distinction between terrorists, volunteers who fought them in Middle East - Peskov

MOSCOW. March 11 (Interfax) - "There is a clear distinction" between terrorist mercenaries and volunteers from Middle East countries who have expressed the wish to fight for the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics free of charge, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"There are terrorists and there are those who fought terrorists [in Syria], and there is a clear distinction between one and the other," Peskov said at a press briefing on Friday in response to a question whether terrorists might join the operation under the guise of volunteers.
