“We prepared it for the counteroffensive.”

The group has been responsible for many huge missions, causing damage to Russian infrastructure inside Ukraine.

One of those was the destruction of a railway intersection in Crimea last month.

This severed a rail link from the town of Feodosia directly into Russia.

They have also been known to blow up bridges, point out targets to missile attacks and sabotaging Russian military vehicles.

Honta admitted that they group actually leave a calling card at the site of their missions, too.

But this could land him in serious trouble if President Vladimir Putin's men find him.

He said: “Russians have searched me numerous times at checkpoints. Initially it gave me anxiety but now since I live in that atmosphere all the time, I just do it casually.

“But if they find this card it will be hard to get away with it.”

Speaking about the group, a Ukrainian intelligence officer known only as Khemel opened up about the groups and soldiers performing these acts.

He said: “These people are taking unbelievable risks, but we cannot give them a medal or a gift or an official salary – they think they are alone.

“After this interview they will understand that people in the West read about them, remember about them.

“They will understand that we have friends.”

Russia has not released up-to-date figures for several months.
