Ukraine has established a bureau to collect data on prisoners of war, dead and missing

Ukraine has created a National Information Bureau (NIB) in accordance with international humanitarian law. This was announced on Friday, March 18, by the Ministry of Justice.

The ministry clarified that according to the General Staff, the loss of enemy personnel already exceeds 14,000 troops.

“Our defenders daily capture those who illegally invaded our territory from February 24 of this year to this day. So the lists of both the dead and the prisoners of war of Russia will also be compiled by the Ukrainian side. Their families should know where the Russian authorities sent their children, men and brothers,” the statement stressed.

With the help of the ICRC, which acts as a neutral intermediary, Ukraine will provide information to the enemy side.

These numbers are used for the initial collection of information and communication with victims. In addition, it will be possible to transmit information via messengers.
