ROSTOV-ON-DON, August 27. /ITAR-TASS/. A group of more than 60 Ukrainian military have crossed into Russia’s Rostov Region to ask for asylum, the spokesman for the FSB’s border guard office in the Rostov Region, Nikolai Sinitsyn, has told ITAR-TASS.
“Today, 62 servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces turned to Russian border guards asking to let them into the Russian territory near Russia’s settlement of Shramko, Matveyevo-Kurgansky district with the aim to save their lives,” Sinitsyn said.
He noted that before crossing the Russian border, the Ukrainian servicemen left their guns at the cross-border region. Russian border guards have let them pass and provided a transit corridor proceeding from the principles of humanism.
