Russia claims that its troops captured 13 miles inside the Ukraine by there by accident

(Moscow) Emperor Putin's surreptitious ambition to expand the Russian Empire at the expense of the neighbours received a huge publicity fail today when the Ukraine paraded 10 Russian paratroopers it had captured 13 miles inside its territory.

Reading from a script, the Russian defence ministry quoted the following:
"The soldiers really did participate in a patrol of a section of the Russian-Ukrainian border, crossed it by accident on an unmarked section, and as far as we understand showed no resistance to the armed forces of Ukraine when they were detained."

So, the excuse given by Putin is that these soldiers didn't have a map. Yeah, right, just like that missile which took down that Malaysian airliner, there is no story here, so let's move on.
