Is this a sign of poor morale in the Russian Military, as they are being ordered to attack their fellow Slavs without any provocation?

Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova
said on Thursday that a platoon of Russian soldiers surrendered to the Ukrainian military, saying they "didn't know that they were brought to Ukraine to kill Ukrainians."
At a press briefing, Markarova said, "Just before I came here, we got information from our chief commander that one of the platoons of the 74th motorized brigade from Kemerovo Oblast surrendered."
"They didn't know that they were brought to Ukraine to kill Ukrainians. They thought they were doing something else there," she added.
Markarova said that the "combat spirit" of the Ukrainian military is "high."
