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.
Up to 16,000 military men of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been entrapped near the towns of Severodonetsk and Lysichansk
