“The last few weeks have become significant in the issue of war prisoner exchanges. Ukraine cares about everyone, “not loudly”, because it is necessary. This topic is extremely sensitive, we do not spread information about the details of the rescue process in order not to harm this process in the future. We are doing everything possible so that Ukrainian soldiers return home!” Hanna Malyar said.
Negotiations for the release and exchange of Ukrainian prisoners of war are ongoing.
“28 exchanges have already been carried out and 978 people have been released (including 99 civilians) since the beginning of the full-scale invasion,” said the Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine.
Hanna Malyar emphasized that Ukraine took care of the physical and psychological condition of the released war prisoners.
“Ukrainian servicemen released from Russian captivity undergo treatment and rehabilitation in state medical institutions under the supervision of high-level specialists and receive a full range of necessary medical services free of charge. All their needs are fully financed by Ukraine,” the Deputy Minister of Defense added.
