Ukraine's security service on Monday said its army in the war-torn east has captured 10 Russian paratroopers on Ukrainian soil and was questioning them as part of a criminal probe.
Soldiers from the 98th airborn division based in central Russia were captured near the Ukrainian village of Dzerkalne, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) southeast of the rebel hub Donetsk, it said in a statement. "Investigators opened a criminal probe into illegal border crossing by Russian armed citizens," it added.
