Ukraine carried out a humanitarian action and handed over to russia all seriously wounded prisoners of war whose condition allowed transportation, captured since the beginning of the large-scale invasion, Coordination Headquarters for the Treatment of Prisoners of War reported.

“Adhering to international obligations, in accordance with Articles 109-114 of the Geneva Conventions and with the participation of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Ukraine unilaterally transferred severely wounded and seriously ill captives of the occupiers to the russian side. In this case, it is not about the exchange of prisoners of war, but rather about repatriation: the return of seriously wounded prisoners without any conditions, as stipulated by international humanitarian law,” the message reads.

At the same time, russia continues to disregard international norms and is still holding thousands of Ukrainian citizens hostage, including the seriously ill and wounded, civilians, children and women, the elderly, as well as those who were captured by russia even before the start of the large-scale invasion.
