Pro-Kremlin mercennaries captured two Ukrainian Army servicemen in the combat area in Donbas. The press service of the Army's 14th Detached Mechanized Brigade posted this on Facebook. 

'On May 26, two of our men were obnoxiously captured by the enemy saboteurs, as they were heading to the outpost. Over the past week, there has been no word about what their fate,' the message says.

The 14th Detached Mechanized Brigade reported that, judging by the videos released by the militant-controlled media, the captives are alive.

'The staged TV reels and the so-called briefing of their military clearly show that the Ukrainian army servicemen faced powerful psychological, and, perhaps, physical pressure. The captives feed the adversaries false information about the Armed Forces on the whole, and the brigade, in particular', the message went on.

The army unit's command is now making efforts to release the servicemen.
