Russians have more prisoners than the Armed Forces of Ukraine
President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the enemy has more captured Ukrainians than the Armed Forces of Ukraine – captured Russians. Therefore, the task of our military is to create the largest possible exchange fund in order to return home all our defenders.
At the same time, Zelensky noted that after the success of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region, this exchange fund has increased significantly. We are talking about hundreds of Russian soldiers.

The bodies of the dead defenders arrive in a terrible state
The head of the patronage service of the defenders of Azovstal, Elena Tolkacheva, said that Ukraine receives the bodies of the dead heroes in a terrible condition. Sometimes it is impossible not only to recognize the body visually, but to take the material for a DNA test.
Tolkacheva is also amazed at how the Russians treat the bodies of their military during the exchange. Therefore, she has no idea what the invaders are doing with the bodies of Ukrainian soldiers.
