The Ukrainian security services released video footage that show Russian servicemen captured by the Ukrainian government while they were fighting against the Pro Russian rebels in Ukraine. The video appears as Ukrainian and Russian leaders try to meet for talk in the capital of Belarus in order to try to end the conflict.
Russia denies that it helps the pro-Russian rebels. The state security service of Ukraine said it detained ten Russian paratroopers. The soldiers were said to have crossed in a column of dozens of armed infantry vehicles.
The video cannot be checked for accuracy. It shows 2 people declaring that they are Russian soldiers. According to the Ukrainian defense minister, they are officially on various military exercises in Russia, when the truth is that they are involved in Ukraine, carrying out military operations.
It was declared that the allegedly Russian servicemen that were detained had personal documents on them and weapons so their identification was made.
Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister, declared that the report is “dis-information”.
