Quite a lot of time has passed since the last exchange of prisoners with a terrorist state, at least several months, if you take into account the sending of “Putin’s godfather” Viktor Medvedchuk to the Russian Federation.
About the fact that today, On January 3, our country was able to return from Russian captivity more than 200 fighters who had previously defended Mariupol, and, in particular, Azovstal, writes NBN, citing information published in the official Telegram channel of the president Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky.
According to Zelensky, 230 of our people will soon return home – 213 soldiers and sergeants, 11 officers and 6 civilians, therefore we should thank everyone who helped achieve such a positive result .
It should be noted that this is the 49th exchange of prisoners of war since the beginning of the full-scale aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, however, the first one carried out in the current year, and 2828 defenders have already met with their families .
Earlier, we wrote about that Zelensky revealed the features of the non-public process of exchanging prisoners of war.
