As part of the exchange, one hundred Russian servicemen returned from Ukrainian captivity - Ministry of Defense

Russia has returned home another group of Russian servicemen who were in Ukrainian captivity. The Ministry of Defense reports an exchange with Kiev today. According to the military, the exchange took place through the mediation of the United Arab Emirates.

One hundred Russian military personnel returned from Ukrainian captivity, and exactly the same number of military personnel were transferred to the Ukrainian side. According to the report, the exchange took place according to the formula “one hundred for one hundred.” At the moment, all our soldiers returned from captivity are examined by doctors, they are provided with the necessary assistance, and in the future they will be sent by military aviation aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces to Moscow, where they will undergo treatment and rehabilitation in medical institutions of the Ministry of Defense.



On February 8, as a result of the negotiation process, 100 Russian military personnel, who were in mortal danger in captivity, were returned from territory controlled by the Kyiv regime. In exchange, 100 prisoners of war were transferred to the Ukrainian Armed Forces

- said in a statement.

Note that this is the second exchange that followed after the Ukrainian Armed Forces shot down a Russian military transport plane with Ukrainian prisoners of war on board on January 24. On January 31, during the exchange, 195 Russian servicemen returned home from captivity.

As the Russian president previously stated, “we will not abandon our guys.” According to him, Russia will return captured Russian military personnel by any means, including through the mediation of other countries. Let us note that this is not the first time that the United Arab Emirates has acted as an intermediary in an exchange.

      It can only be welcomed that exchanges and the rescue of our people from captivity continue. The main thing is to return as much as possible, preferably all of them.

      Of course, you always need to rescue your own people, but you don’t need to transport the exchangeable amount of non-humans on airplanes, while losing your fighters. You didn’t want to follow the only true path inherent in any Man - to raise arms against your former demonic Master, a Ukrainian-American fascist, you remained a non-human, you thirst by fascist nature after the exchange, go kill Russian children again - walk to the exchange point, under supervision, of course. Eh, we are kind, sometimes so much so that it even hurts your teeth...

        Yuri, Ukrainian prisoners were transported from Zhukovsky near Moscow... Are you proposing to drive them on foot from Moscow to the border? I wouldn’t mind if it wasn’t an exchange of prisoners, but we always have to remember how the other side might respond to such a march on foot.
        There are more questions here: where and when did we allow so many of our soldiers to be captured? After all, the count is already in the thousands since the beginning of the SVO. And any capture is a mistake in the command of troops. If earlier they wrote that the SBU had enough ordinary civilians in the Donbass to exchange for their Nazis, now these are our military personnel, which we recognize and do not dispute. I understand that talking about this in the media is unpleasant and not worthwhile while there is a war going on. you just need to save your guys.

      And how many thousands of these grief-stricken people were captured? Actually, they were sent there to fight and not to raise their hands. They didn’t change it during WWII

        Are you talking about VSUk? Ten thousand were recently spoken about, perhaps more.

          Russian prisoners of war are kept far from the front line, in camps in western Ukraine, in the Lviv region.

          At the same time, the number of Ukrainian prisoners of war is estimated at 20–25 thousand. These data are provided by Western military analysts.

        I apologize, during the Second World War there was order 270. Maybe the guys ran out of ammunition, they were a little shell-shocked, anything can happen.

      The battles are practically positional; there are no front breakthroughs in the style of 1941.
      But our prisoners are being exchanged. Only recently 230 + 195 + 100.....
      I hope they are identified as a “filter”.
      And from there some go to the trenches, some to the disbat, and some to the zone for 20 years.
      I remember a scandal on the Internet, how 2 (in words: TWO!!!) two Ukrainian soldiers shot 11 (eleven, Karl!!!) of our soldiers, who asked to be taken prisoner and willingly lay on their tummies, waiting for a safe life in a cultural camp.
      They were disappointed - the Ukrainians were in a bad mood.
      Otherwise, these 11 would now be returning from captivity as heroes.

          They have NOT run out of BC.
          The twelfth of them fired back, but was killed.
          The rest abandoned AK and BC and tried to give up.
          But they failed.

        Perhaps those executed were luckier than those who survived and are forced to live under capitalism and watch as confiscated food is destroyed by rollers, sick people are collected for treatment via text messages, and prices rise faster than savings

          Yes, drovan, disappointed. Tsipsa is no longer the same. Shredded.

          You think like a calculator. You divide everyone into tsipso or your own. What if I’m not a tsipso and I have my own side and I’m fed up with your madness? If we start building socialism, everyone will fight to join one socialist state. And under capitalism you will still have an elite with real estate and children abroad. Almost all CIS countries have already fought with each other and there is no end to this. How much can you step on the same rake and not draw conclusions.

      They know firsthand what hell on earth is. I’m glad for our soldiers that now they are among their relatives and are no longer in danger, and at home, as they say, even walls heal.

      There is something too much in the captivity of our soldiers. Obviously we don't know something.
