Released prisoners of war
Almost all of the released servicemen are injured and seriously ill, the Coordinating Headquarters reported.
Almost all Ukrainians who were released from Russian captivity on Tuesday, March 7, are injured or seriously ill. This was stated by Deputy Head of the Working Group of the Coordination Headquarters Bogdan Okhrimenko on the air of the telethon.
He noted that this exchange became 39 after the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation. Hundreds of families received good news, their relatives returned – 130 defenders and defenders.
“The state of health, unfortunately, wants to be better, because in this exchange, almost all servicemen have injuries, serious illnesses that they received during the struggle for the independence of Ukraine,” Okhrimenko said.
As for the return of civilian Ukrainians, work continues.
“But civilians cannot be considered prisoners of war, their return should be without any exchanges. Since holding civilians hostage is another article of the criminal code. In this case, we can talk about terrorism. Keeping civilians is a crime against the civilian population,” explained the deputy head of the Coordinating Working Group headquarters.
Recall that on Tuesday, the Ukrainian authorities achieved the return of 130 servicemen from Russian captivity – 126 defenders and 4 defenders.
