Russia and Ukraine Swap Prisoners

Ukraine handed over a group of Russian paratroopers in return for 63 Ukrainian soldiers who crossed into Russia last week.

Ukraine captured 10 paratroopers and claimed it was proof that the Russian military is aiding rebels in eastern Ukraine. Moscow said the men crossed the border accidentally.

The prisoner swap comes after a week where pro-Russian rebels gained ground in east Ukraine.
