Ukraine Returns Civilians and Military From Captivity

12 Ukrainians were released from the Russian fund for prisoners of war 

On 26 October, the head of the presidential office, Andrii Yermak, announced a new exchange of people with the aggressor country. The Ukrainian side released 12 persons, among them the civilian population. 3 civilians, a couple and a man, were captured during the occupation. For a long time, they were considered missing. They have now been able to return to their families. It is also reported that the list of those released included Ukrainian defenders from the island of Snake, the Chornobyl nuclear power plant, and Mariupol. This means that 9 Ukrainian soldiers were held captive for 7 to 9 months. Among those released were 2 officers, seven soldiers, and sergeants. Doctors are now giving them all the help they need.

It is reported that 98 Ukrainians returned to their homeland in a week. Their lives are no longer threatened by Russian permissiveness.

But it is worth recalling that the Kremlin still has hundreds of defenders of Azovstal. Including 22-year-old Cheleniuk Mariana. The girl provided medical care to Azovstal, but after the Russians learned she was a police officer, they took her prisoner. According to preliminary information, the Russians first detained the girl in Olenivka and then transported her to the Russian territory in a remand centre.
