A source told Deir Ezzor 24 Network that Russian forces started recruiting young men for the 5th Corps that Russian officers run.

The source noted that the Russians try to recruit young men so that they participate in the military campaign to comb al-badiya.

The source emphasized that the Russians recruit the young men in groups or militias that directly belong to the 5th Corps, hence to the Russian forces. The source added that the militias will deploy to west of the Euphrates and the Assad regime-controlled areas east of the Euphrates.

Russian forces started recruiting young men in Deir Ezzor four month ago. The Russians tempt the recruits with large salaries per month for using them on front lines that Russian forces run in Syria and Libya. Earlier, Russian forces assigned the Russian-backed al-Quds Liwaa militia to follow up the recruitment process.
