The Russian Defense Ministry source also said the Russian servicemen had accidentally crossed the Ukrainian border during a patrol mission and that they had not offered resistance during detention.

"Ukrainian servicemen repeatedly entered the Russian territory separately or in groups totalling more than 500, with weapons in hands and carried by armoured vehicles and we didn't make much noise about it, simply returning to a safe place in the Ukrainian territory all those who so wished," the ministry’s official said.
