Ukraine, Russia Send Home Around 200 Troops In Prisoner Swap

More than 200 Russian and Ukrainian soldiers have returned home in a prisoner swap. 

Russia’s Defense Ministry says 106 Russian soldiers were released from Ukrainian custody as part of an agreement with Ukraine. 

Andriy Yermak, Chief of Staff to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, says that Russia freed 100 Ukrainian prisoners as well. 

Neither announcement mentioned whether any intermediaries were involved in the agreement. 

Ukraine’s Coordination Headquarters for the Treatment of Prisoners of War alleged that almost half of the 80 men and 20 women soldiers who returned home have serious injuries, illnesses or have been tortured. It presented no evidence for its claims.
