Ukraine has released footage of one of two alleged Russian servicemen it claims to have captured.

Kiev accuses the pair of being part of a special forces group that killed and wounded Ukrainian troops in eastern regions – and says they will be prosecuted for “terrorist acts.”

It is claimed the man featured in the video has admitted to being part of a spying group from a central Russian town.

“After we arrived at a local hospital, we put a guard in place. And during a short interrogation, they told us that their group was made up of 14 people.”

Kiev has seized on the capture of the men to boost accusations of direct Russian military involvement in the separatist conflict.

Moscow denies having any troops in Ukraine.
