You're reading: Russian military source says captured soldiers entered Ukraine by mistake

 “The soldiers were patrolling the Russian-Ukrainian border when they most likely crossed accidentally at an unequipped and unmarked checkpoint,” said the unnamed source.

On the evening on Aug. 25, the Security Service of Ukraine, or SBU, said it had captured 10 Russian soldiers in the village of Dzerkalny, Donetsk Oblast, roughly 14 kilometers from the Russian border in a statement on its website.

The capture of the Russian soldiers comes at a time when border tensions between Ukraine and Russia are already high after Russia sent a humanitarian convoy into eastern Ukraine without Ukrainian authorities’ approval.  Ukraine said it considered such convoys to be a violation of its sovereignty and international law while Russia announced it will send another convoy as early as this week.
