Russian pilots have been filmed saying they were “carrying out orders” after their plane crashed into Ukraine.
The images and videos show men, some on their knees with their hands behind their heads and others bleeding, after being arrested by soldiers and civilians in a field.
The video shared on the network shows a pilot, on a crashed Russian plane, wearing an orange jumpsuit, on his knees, with his hands behind his head, while asking him to catch him.
He was shot dead in the Ukrainian city of Chernihiv on Saturday after two pilots were fired from a plane – believed to be a fire-30.
Images of a Russian pilot wearing a blue jumpsuit and a blood-stained T-shirt were also treated for a head injury.
With a bandage on his head, he nodded wearily as Ukrainian troops questioned him.
In a third video, two men, allegedly carrying Russian drivers with blood on their faces, are interrogated in the back of a van.
The Russian air force lost eight planes a day, as well as multi-role, attack and close-up aircraft and a drone.
A Russian pilot was seen wearing a blue jumpsuit and a blood-stained T-shirt while he was being treated for a head wound.
The image shared on the network shows a pilot, in a crashed helicopter, wearing an orange jumpsuit, kneeling with his hands behind his head while questioning his capture.

More images shared online yesterday show a Russian helicopter being shot down by Ukrainian soldiers.
As the approaching Mi-24 Hind aircraft approaches, defense troops throw a rocket into the sky from a snow-covered field about 25 miles from the capital Kyiv.
The head burns, leaving a trail of white smoke. Its target is blocked before the crew enters the infrared jammers and flare distributors.
The invaders receive a savage and direct blow; the helicopter explodes immediately, sending out bright orange flames exploding from the engine.
The battered Mi-24 will fall to the ground, hitting the ground first in the nose for fear of killing all its pilots and navigators.
Their losses, according to Ukrainian military sources, provide further evidence that Russia failed to gain air dominance, a tactical advantage that Vladimir Putin believed he would gain on the first day of the war.
But, ten days later, the Russian president’s air force is still highly praised for picking up the ambushes of a highly mobile Ukrainian air defense unit equipped with rocket launchers fired from the shoulder.
In another significant development yesterday, Putin came under pressure from his soldiers to stop the war. At a press conference in Kiev, the captured Russian troops condemned the mission and called on their citizens to rally against the conflict.
Andrey Chuvatarevsky, a contracted soldier in the Moscow region, said: “The Russians are doing everything they can to stop this war. Neither Ukraine nor Russia need this war. Only Putin needs this war.
“Try to inform the president, keep the military away from equipment, so that it does not lead the civilian population and prevent it from being bombed. If he goes out, the President will decide to withdraw his troops. Then there will be no war. ‘
Trapped member Mikhail Kulikov warned that Ukrainian children were suffering: “People of Russia, stand up. Your children are here. The children of the Ukrainian people are also suffering here. There is no need to be afraid.
“The people of Ukraine are not afraid of anyone. They will support their land to the end. I also have two small children at home, I don’t know if I’ll get there. Parents, block the roads, don’t let your children go, everything is done so that the Russian troops can back down. “
The two men were among the ten soldiers who spoke at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine yesterday. They voluntarily surrendered and each of them received good treatment and indicated the opportunity to contact relatives.
Prisoner Dmitry Gagarin told Russian relatives and friends not to listen to Russian propaganda. “I would like to hear from all the Russian people that not everything here is like what they say on Russian television,” he said.
“She is OK. Here are the ordinary peaceful people who have come together against a person, Putin, who wanted to be a conqueror. “
Ukrainian forces were holding on to key cities in central and southeastern Ukraine last night, while Russians are trying to keep Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Chernivtsi and Sumy surrounded, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said.
At least 351 civilians have been killed since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, but the actual number is likely to be much higher, the UN human rights bureau said.
Stunning images of the last moments of a helicopter dubbed a “flying tank” by Russian air forces appeared yesterday after Ukrainian soldiers hit it.
The battered Mi-24 descends to the ground, hitting the ground first in the nose, believing that all its pilots and navigators will be killed.
President Zelensky said yesterday that 10,000 Russian soldiers had been killed in the war, and it could not be independently verified.
“We are causing losses to occupiers who could not see their worst nightmare,” he added.
The Russian military, which does not provide regular updates on the dead, said on Wednesday that 498 of its soldiers had been killed in the conflict.
Ukraine’s military strength is greater than that of Russia, but its military and volunteer forces have fought hard since the invasion.
At least 47 people were killed and hundreds more injured on Friday when Russian planes fired missiles at high-rise apartments in the city, and debris piled up in the fire, trapping residents below.
