Russia launched a “special operation” into Ukraine on Thursday morning, sparking fears Vladimir Putin will seek to inglobate the whole country into Russia.
The Embassy said: “We’ve had confirmation from our Chief Commander one of the platoons of the 74th Motorised Brigade from Kemerovo has surrendered.
“Also noting they didn’t know they were brought in to Ukraine to kill Ukrainians.
“They thought they were doing something else there.”
