“Geography can be tough. Here’s a guide for Russian soldiers who keep getting lost and ‘accidentally entering’ #Ukraine.” As of Thursday morning, the map had been retweeted over 16,000 times.
Ukraine has repeatedly accused Russia of sending troops to support pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine’s east. Russia has repeatedly denied the allegations, despite evidence otherwise.
