But by constantly threatening nuclear weapons, the aggressor violates laws. For example, the aggressor forcibly kidnaps Ukrainian citizens, including children, to the RF and keeps civilians in captivity. Therefore, the Ukrainian side, at the same time as the negotiations on the release of military prisoners of war, should agree on freedom for civilians.
Dariia Zarovna reports that holding ordinary people captive is illegal. Moreover, such prisoners should be released first, without conditions or requirements. According to the regulations, civilians should not be exchanged for prisoners of war either. However, it is not the first time that Ukrainians are returned from captivity together with the defenders. At this time, criminal Russia is returning home only troops. The presidential advisor also reports that 106 people have been released in 11 months. How many more peaceful Ukrainians are being held captive by the Russians is unknown.
Also, recall that Azovstal fighters still did not return home. In the hands of Russia more than 2.000 soldiers.
