Russian troops in the besieged region of Kharkiv have been poisoned in a show of kindness.
According to an announcement posted to Facebook, at least two troops from the 3rd Motor Rifle Division of the Russian Federation died after eating stuffed buns in Izium, a town about 80 miles southeast of Kharkiv.
The Russians are being treated in intensive care for eating the contaminated treats. The condition of these invaders has not been confirmed.
Several hundred Russian soldiers have suffered serious illnesses from drinking poisoned alcohol while in the region. The Russian military is writing off non-combat losses as combat losses, according to Ukrainian officials.
According to The New York Times, the locals have been unsuccessful in their attempts to take Izium, despite the fact that Russian troops have retreated from the capital of Kyiv. The town, which lies along the eastern frontline near the Russian border, has been targeted intensely since the start of the war nearly six weeks ago. Control of the eastern city would allow Russians to coordinate with the fighting in the south of the country. This would split the eastern front, isolating the southern forces from those fighting in the north.
The city of Kharkiv, which is 25 miles from the border, has experienced some of the most severe fighting since the war began. Russian forces have been destroying the city in the fight to take it.
