The Ukrainian military captured five servicemen of the russian army from the 70th motorized rifle regiment, which was formed by the russians in 2016, sprotyv.info reports.
Acording to the media, a video, that as shared by Ukrainian military journalist Andrii Tsaplienko, shows captured military personnel who illegally entered the territory of a sovereign state Ukraine. Two out of five speak russian very poorly, or rather one of them cannot speak russian at all, as he is a citizen of Nepal.

The 22-year-old boy explained that he studied at one of the local universities in russia. Later, he was threatened with deportation. A resident of Nepal tried to find ways to stay in the russian federation, and he was offered service in the army, promising a payment of 195,000 rubles a month. However, he received only 4,000 rubles in one month and 20 days.
According to Andrii Tsaplienko, in the story of the resident of Nepal, everything related to studentship can be a lie or a half-truth.
"He does not speak russian and speaks English very poorly. Therefore, it is unlikely that he could enter a university, even a russian one. The sale of student visas through universities is a corrupt component of the channel of illegal migration in the post-Soviet space. That is, he is probably just an ordinary illegal. But he claims that there are more than a thousand people like him in the russian army. The figure is clearly an exaggeration, however, russia seems to have found another source to replenish its army of slaves," Ukrainian military journalist states.
As Defense Express reported, russia accelerated pace of "hidden mobilization", reaching 25,000 of recruits for two weeks. We also wrote, that feeling lack of "cannon fodder", Invaders enhanced mobilization both in occupied territory of Ukraine, in russia.
