This chapter addresses the question of Russian foreign fighters in Ukraine fighting for or against the Ukrainian government. An effort is made to determine their numbers, channels of recruitment as well as their main motivations to take up arms. All in all, the main conclusion is that the active involvement of the Russian state in the flow of foreign fighters makes this case a highly unique one.
