You are right! What about the 438?

438 Ukrainian Troops Seek Asylum In Russia; Government Passes "War Tax"

(...and thanks for mentioning the "nazi" Gubarev photo(shop), the result will be useful in other cases...)

Zerohedge is one of those sites that is along the same lines as Alex Jones. Secondly the article you posted is not even supported by the Russian narrative, who stated they ukraine troops were able to get safe passage into Russia. A bulk of those troops have returned to Ukraine.

We know this because rebels attacked those columns knowing full well they were not armed.

...not even supported by the Russian narrative...

438 is U.S. narrative or Russian narrative or just the number of soldiers?

This is an awkward position: You know, the so called "good guys"...

From the 438 soldiers at about 200 decided to go back to ukraine.

"The soldiers of 72 Brigade: We do not know where we're going, nobody says anything "

Train with fighters of the 72nd Brigade, who were secretly tried to ship to Chernigov to regroup and return in zone ATO stopped in Kiev on Darnytsia for refilling water. The soldiers went out of the train and said they will not go further, because for six months did not see their families.

The soldiers could not even stop for a few minutes to meet with their families.

"We do not know where we're going, nobody says anything" - said one of the soldiers.
"It is a special transport. It is not clear we have to stay in wagons or we can get out"- says another.

The soldiers say they were under heavy fire near the Ukrainian-Russian border and were forced to move to Russia, because they had no ammo to fight back, the ammunition finished and the promised aid never came.

"We do not want to go anywhere. We want to go home to our familes, to see them at least a few days, "- said one of the young men.

One commander who came to negotiate with the soldiers explained that they were going to Chernigov to find out how many and who they are, and are supposed to fill documents. (because they are officially were on training. (the commander is on the video from 5:50).

The Commander of the 72nd Brigade Gryschenko was not present, but told to their soldiers on phone that they are "deserters"/ Nikita Myekyenzin
