The press release issued by Deputy-Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry Marija Zaharova.
At the night of August 4, 438 Ukrainian military personnel crossed the Russian border and applied for asylum.
According to the Russian press officer, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Christian Science Monitor refused the invitation.
Meanwhile, Russian Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin announced that they've gathered enough evidence to prove that the Ukrainian army used phosphorus bombs against the civilian population in Southeastern Ukraine.
Chemical specialists reported to Russian investigators that they have detected N-17 residues - an ingredient of the bomb - in soil samples provided by refugees collected in Semenivka and Slavansk settlements said the spokesperson.
Markin said Russian investigators might initiate war crimes investigation in the case before an international court.
