There are 200 people on the list in total. It is known that the youngest prisoner is 19 years old, and the oldest is 60.
The Ukrainian state project “I Want to Live,” which accepts requests from occupiers to surrender, published the names of Russian military personnel removed from the Russian list for exchange. The corresponding list of captured occupiers was published in the project’s Telegram channel.
In particular, this is the first time that Ukraine has published the names of Russian soldiers whom the Russian Federation does not want to return to their homeland. The list contains the names of 200 Russian military personnel and their dates of birth.
Thus, the youngest prisoner of war only recently turned 19 years old. The oldest captured Russian military man is 60 years old. In general, the average age of the prisoners is about 39 years.
The draft of the Coordination Headquarters for the Treatment of Prisoners of War notes that by refusing to exchange military personnel, Russia violates its own army regulations.
They noted paragraph 23 of the Charter of the Internal Service of the Russian Armed Forces, which states that Russian commanders and superiors must take measures to release their military in accordance with international humanitarian law.
It is reported that the state project is ready to systematically publish the names of captured Russian military personnel, for whose return Russia refuses to give permission.
Borscht, porridge, salad and no lard: what they feed Russian prisoners of war
Let us recall that back on October 13, Ukrainian intelligence said that Russia does not value the lives of its military personnel who are captured in Ukraine. For example, even when Ukraine was the first to offer to transfer seriously ill or wounded occupiers to the Russian Federation, they refused to take all the people.
GUR representative Andrei Yusov noted that Ukraine is ready to hand over captured Russian military personnel in exchange for Ukrainian military personnel.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian journalists showed the conditions in which the occupiers’ prisoners of war were living in Ukraine. Thus, wounded persons have access to medical care; in their free time, prisoners of war of the Russian Federation can exercise on the sports ground.
Also, occupiers have the opportunity to work and receive a salary for it. They can spend all the money they earn in the camp store.
