New Russia captures mercenaries who were tricked by their commanding officers into an invasion of Donbass that they had refused to do. So they were lied to and told that they were to go in and remove the injured, when in reality they had been unwittingly led into an offensive. The New Russian army defending Donbass has many in captivity but most of them were killed. It was a slaughter that their own government in Kiev tricked them into. They are paraded in front of the townspeople who react in different ways.
