They were with those Iranian piligrims

A Wall Street Journal story based on a Moscow tabloid interview with Igor Strelkov, the apparent leader of one of the pro-Russian militias in eastern Ukraine --

Most of the men in the command possess war experience, including former service in the Russian or Ukrainian militaries and tours in Chechnya, Central Asia, the former Yugoslavia and Iraq, according to Mr. Strelkov. He said some "even managed to visit" Syria.

Now why would military operatives with shady links to Russian intelligence have been visiting Syria?
