The Southern Military District of the Russian Armed Forces stated on Monday that it had killed five members of a group of Ukrainian "saboteurs" after they attempted to enter Russian territory, according to RIA Novosti.

The military, along with border guards, clashed with two military vehicles belonging to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, according to the Russian report. No injuries were reported among the Russian military.
