Two Russian soldiers have died and another 28 are in intensive care after eating poisoned stuffed buns gifted to them by brave and defiant Ukrainian civilians in the eastern town of Izium, near Kharkiv.
It's thought that two soldiers from the 3rd Motor Rifle Division died immediately after eating the stuffed buns, the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine announced via Facebook on Saturday, April 2.
"As a result, two invaders were killed at once, another 28 went to intensive care. Their current state is to be specified," the organisation claimed.
A further 500 soldiers from the 3 Motostrils Division are in hospital with "heavy alcohol poisoning of unknown origin", reports The Mirror.
Russia has written the deaths off as "'non-combat losses" reports The Daily Mail.
The poisonings are the latest efforts by Ukrainian civilians fighting back against Russian troops to defend their homes.
The poisonings reflect the catastrophic failure of iRussia's "special military operation" in Ukraine.

Despite strict Kremlin control of Russian media, reports of the scale of the losses are filtering back home through western media reports and calls from desperate young Russian conscripts.
PM Boris Johnson said Putin’s increasing brutality is a sign that the Russian leader is trying to “snuff out the flame of freedom in Ukraine” because he fears an uprising in Moscow.
“If Putin succeeds in crushing Ukraine, it will be the green light for autocrats everywhere in the Middle East, in the Far East,” he said. “This is a turning point for the world. It’s a moment of choice. It’s a choice between freedom and oppression.”
