Andrew Hill laid down his arms and surrendered to Russian servicemen in the Nikolayev region. The group of mercenaries, in which the Briton was fighting, was defeated and he was wounded," the Russian Defense Ministry said.
In a video-recorded interview, Hill told the Russian military that he was originally from Plymouth, had voluntarily arrived in Ukraine via the Polish border, then fought as part of a group of seven men. He was unable to explain who was giving them orders.
The British press has recently reported that Russia was going to conduct a nuclear test either on the borders with Ukraine or in the Black Sea.
