Shocking: Surrendered Russian soldier in tears as Ukrainians helps him to call his mom
Social media is taking aback after seeing a video of a surrendered Russian soldier being fed by Ukrainians.
The video, which lasted 1m 45 seconds, shows Ukrainians assisting the captured soldier in calling his mom while he drinks tea and eats pasty.
Due to the kindness shown, the soldier busted into tears as his mom consoled him that "everything will be okay, my son."
Meanwhile, a male voice is heard in the background, saying in a local language, "these young men. It's not their fault. They don't know why they are here."
President Zelenksky had earlier said, "these are not warriors of the superpower. These are confused children who were used."
"All the captives say only one thing: they do not know why they are here. Despite the fact that there are dozens of times more than them, the morale of the enemy is constantly deteriorating."
