Ukraine security service: Russian mercenaries must face trial in Ukraine

KYIV (Reuters) - Ukraine’s security service SBU said on Thursday all suspected Russian mercenaries detained in Belarus must face trial in Ukraine.

Belarusian security forces detained more than 30 suspected Russian mercenaries near Minsk after receiving information that more than 200 fighters had entered the country to destabilise it ahead of a presidential election.
