This was reported by the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.

“All this time, we have not stopped working for a single day to bring each and every one of our people back from Russian captivity. And today we have an important result: 75 more of our people have returned to Ukraine”, he stated.

According to the President, the returnees from Russian captivity include soldiers of the AFU and the National Guard, border guards, and four civilians.

“We remember everyone. We are doing everything possible to find each and every one. Thank you to the team working on the exchanges”, he noted.
