Earlier it was reported that Ukraine and Russia conducted the largest exchange of prisoners of war on January 3, with 230 Ukrainian defenders returning home.  Experts believe that the aggressor country took this step in pursuit of its own goals, which it will later use in information campaigns.

The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine reported that since the beginning of the full-scale war, 2, 828 Ukrainian citizens have been returned from Russian captivity. This process will continue.
