A group of Russian riot police is suing for wrongful dismissal after being sacked for refusing to invade Ukraine.

Twelve officers from the Omon special police unit rebelled against the plans when they were ordered to cross the border into Ukraine on February 25, the day after President Vladimir Putin launched his invasion.
