Disowned and forgotten: Russian soldiers in Ukraine
A Russian parliamentarian and human rights observers are demanding Russia finally admit its own soldiers are fighting in Ukraine. The soldiers are risking their lives, they say, in an undeclared war.
The official Russian version of events is as follows: In eastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian army is battling Ukrainian army rebels, the so called "people's militia." A civil war is taking place between the nation's own people.
Russian human rights observers, however, assume that Russian soldiers have long been involved in the war in eastern Ukraine. They are convinced that not only volunteers or mercenaries are fighting there, but regular Russian army soldiers. Many of them are in a tragic situation, risking their lives in a war that, according to their own country's account, isn't being led by Russia at all.
Up to 12,000 Russian soldiers in Ukraine?
Lev Schlosberg, representative of the deputy assembly for the Pskow district in northwest Russia, was the first to speak openly about secret burials of soldiers from the Pskower parachute division.
"The community must know what's really happening. To my great regret, the civil authorities as well as the defense ministry are not telling the truth," Schlosberg told DW. "There is enough evidence that regular Russian troops - disguised as units of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk - are taking part in the fighting in Ukraine."

Not a war, its a Russian - Ukraine live fire exercise???
From many reports it would appear the Kiev Government have likewise abandoned the “volunteer units.” They had more BTR 4s at the parade in Kiev than on the battlefield. And they are manufactured in Kharkiv, Ukraine!
Remember all of the lies about the Kursk?
Did Russia learn to “leave behind” their men from obama and hitlary?
Since Russia denies any troops are in Ukraine then those must be some other troops.
Ukraine is going to end up putting those captured soldiers back on an airline flight to Russia. Although they might not be safe from Putin if they go back.
I think the number is at least 12,000 an growing fast as more armored columns enter the country.

So, Putin’s pursuit of his imperial dreams aren’t such an easy sale after all, eh? Thanks TigerLikesRooster.
Those Russian soldiers inadvertently ended up in Ukraine. If you must know, margin of error for the new Russian GPS is +/- 10 miles
