The drug laboratories were discovered by DPR troops in the village of Sopino near Mariupol, where bases of the "Right Sector" nationalist organisation (banned in Russia) were located.
Donetsk People Republic (DPR) troops have discovered what appears to be drug laboratories where "combat" drugs for Ukrainian nationalists were made, a Sputnik correspondent reported.
"[Here is] a laboratory used for the production of substances near Mariupol, the Nazis were stationed here. A similar one was found in a neighbouring liberated village. I don’t even want to touch it with my hands: some syringes, flasks, some powders, preparations, there is a whole kind of small production complex", the correspondent said.
A DPR soldier said that drugs are the reason for the "stupidity and courage" of the Ukrainian nationalists.
Locals from Kharkov also told Sputnik that fighters of the nationalist battalions currently in the city "give the impression of people in a state of drug intoxication, they behave inappropriately and exalted, have wild eyes".
The so-called "combat drugs" - particularly, captagon, which contains amphetamine - are extremely popular among Daesh* terrorists. Daesh fighters use them in order to not feel fear and to increase morale.
*Daesh (Islamic State, IS) is a terrorist organisation banned in Russia and many other countries
