107 Ukrainian prisoners are released


A total of 214 soldiers have been released by Ukraine and Russia in the latest prisoner exchange.

The Russian defense ministry confirmed that 107 Russian soldiers had surrendered to them and will now be flown to Moscow for medical treatment.

In a post on the Telegram messaging app, Ukraine’s Presidential Office Chief Andriy Yermak confirmed it had taken 107 of its military personnel, including six officers and 101 privates.

He added that some prisoners had been captured at the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, which became a hotbed of fighting before the city fell again in April.

“There are people with amputated limbs and burns who cannot feel parts of their face, with infected wounds,” he wrote.

Earlier, the Russian-installed head of the occupied Donetsk region said 107 captured Ukrainian soldiers would also be released.

However, there is still no confirmation from Ukraine that this has happened.

Since the war began in February, both sides have participated in several prisoner exchanges.

Last month, more than 100 Ukrainian women were freed in what was one of the biggest exchanges of the war.
