Prisoner exchanges between Ukraine and Russia began to take place more intensively and a significant part of Ukrainians returned home.
Far from all “Azovites” have returned home from captivity, and many Ukrainian families are waiting for the return of their relatives from captivity in Russia. This was said on Tuesday, December 27, at a briefing “Christmas in captivity” in the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform, the mother of a prisoner of war, a representative of the NGO Council of Wives and Mothers of Defenders of Ukraine “Women from Bakal” Natalia Kravtsova.
“Today thousands of Ukrainian families live in their own personal hell, there is no information about the fate of their relatives who stood up for Ukraine and fell into the hands of the enemy or disappeared,” he said.
At the same time, he noted that exchanges have begun and fighters are returning to Ukraine.
“It is positive that at least some people are changing the defenders of Azovstal. But among them there are no fighters of the Azov regiment, with which the Russians have a special relationship,” he said.
According to him, now more than 700 Azov fighters are in captivity in Russia for the eighth month.
Earlier it was reported that during the exchange of prisoners, the representatives of Russia carry out a certain gradation among them. The “simpler” the prisoner is, the less the captors are interested in him.
