KIEV, May 22 (RAPSI) - A court in Kiev ordered the detention until July 19 of Russian national, Alexander Aleksandrov, on suspicion of terrorism, RIA Novosti reported on Friday.

Ukrainian authorities claim that Aleksandrov was captured in eastern region of the country along with another Russian national, Yevgeny Yerofeyev, during an attack on a bridge.

Both men who face terrorism charges serve in the Third Special Forces Brigade, which is based in Togliatti, a city in southern Russia, according to Ukrainian authorities.

Moscow strongly denies the allegations. Russian Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that the two men "were not on active service in the Russian Armed Forces" at the time of their capture on May 17.
