Viral video captured the moment a group of compassionate Ukrainians was seen caring for a crying Russian soldier.

The soldier, who remains unnamed at the time of this reporting, appears to be a very young man.

What are the details?

Video footage obtained by Wall Street Journal reporter Matthew Luxmoore showed the unnamed soldier hungrily eating and drinking what appeared to be a pastry and tea while a young Ukrainian woman phones the young man's mother via video chat, Insider reported.

The soldier can be seen becoming emotional, and at one point, his mother can be heard saying, "Everything is fine, son. Everything is fine."

The young soldier appears overcome with emotion and is unable to say anything, but begins crying at one point during the call, fat tears pilling on his eyelashes.

An off-camera male can then be heard in Ukrainian reportedly telling the woman, whose name is apparently Natasha, "They give away their children as cannon fodder. They don't know where they are going, they just wander around. Rise, woman! You must all rise up and get Crimea up on your feet! Get people up on your feet! You see your son is alive, nothing bad will happen to him."

The young woman holding the phone for the soldier can then reportedly be heard telling the caller, "OK, Natasha, good luck, may God be with you. Everything is fine. Say goodbye ... They will get into contact with you, Natasha. He is safe and sound. They will get in touch with you later."

The young soldier can then be seen blowing a kiss to his mother while continuing to choke up.

Luxmoore shared the video to Twitter, captioning it, "Video shared on Ukrainian channels of a captured Russian soldier apparently being fed by locals. The post says he burst into tears when he was allowed to video-call his mother. So many of these troops are just teenagers, with absolutely no clue what this war is really for."
