MOSCOW, August 26 (RIA Novosti) - Russian military servicemen detained by Ukraine’s military were patrolling the border and most likely crossed it by accident, a source in the Russian Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

“These military servicemen were in fact involved in patrolling the Russian-Ukrainian border area and most likely crossed [the border] by accident at an unequipped and unmarked zone, and as far as I know they didn’t resist the armed forces of Ukraine [during their detention],” the source said.

The source pointed out that Ukrainian military have crossed into Russia several times, in larger numbers, carrying weapons and with military hardware, but the Russian side did not make fuss about it and allowed them to return to Ukraine.
