President Volodymyr Zelenskyy posted touching footage of Ukrainians who were returned from Russian captivity. Citizens of our country who had spent a long time in captivity were greeted with the flags of Ukraine.

The liberated Ukrainians made a statement after returning from captivity. The President posted the video on Telegram.

The Ukrainians were met by representatives of the Crimean Tatar people and clergy. Immediately after arriving in their home country, the liberated Ukrainians made their first calls to their relatives.

The citizens of our country also expressed their gratitude for being returned from Russian captivity.

"Thank you very much, I am very glad to see you and very happy to be on my native land," said one of the liberated men.

Captain Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, said that the 53rd exchange, which included the return of 90 military and 10 civilians, was completed. He emphasized that the fact that civilian Ukrainians are being held in Russian captivity testifies to the genocidal nature of Russia's war against Ukraine.

"The very fact that we are talking today about the return of civilian prisoners from Russian captivity is blatant proof to the whole world that the Russian war against Ukrainians is genocidal, that the enemy commits war crimes and ignores international humanitarian law. These people should not be in any kind of captivity and their rights should not be restricted," said Yusov.

On June 25, Ukraine conducted a prisoner exchange with the aggressor country Russia. It was held in the format of 90 to 90 – this is the number of our defenders who were returned from Russian captivity.

As OBOZ.UA reported, on June 28, it became known that Ukraine managed to return 10 more civilians from Russian captivity. Nariman Dzhelal, Valeriy Matiushenko, Olena Pekh, Bohdan Geleta, Ivan Levytskyi, Mykola Shvets, Natalia Zakharenko, Pavlo Kuprienko, Liudmyla Honcharenko, and Kateryna Briukhanova returned from captivity.
