The aggressor state of Russia suspends the exchange of prisoners of war and tries to blame Ukraine for this. The occupiers claim that Kyiv is allegedly making "far-fetched demands," but this is not the case.

Russian Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova has officially stated that the aggressor state has decided to suspend the exchange of prisoners with Ukraine and has groundlessly accused Kyiv of doing so. Her statement was published by Russian propaganda outlets on May 29.

"Unfortunately, the exchanges have been suspended for several months because of Ukraine, which constantly puts forward new far-fetched demands," the Russian dictator Putin's accomplice cynically stated.

At the same time, the Russian ombudsman refused to elaborate on the exact demands from Ukraine, but she emphasized them.

Moskalkova also emphasized that visits to prisoners of war on both sides are mirrored.

"According to the agreement, we visit the prisoners of war in a mirror image every day: the Ukrainian ombudsman visits our prisoners of war, and I visit Ukrainian servicemen," she said.

It should be noted that the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights, Dmytro Lubinets, said that on April 10, Kyiv initiated a prisoner exchange with Russia, but Moscow ignored the proposal. The Ukrainian side was ready to give four captives to the Russian occupiers for each Ukrainian soldier released from captivity.

In addition, Russia was offered to conduct an exchange under the "all for all" formula on the occasion of Orthodox Easter. According to Lubinets, Ukraine has also confirmed its readiness to join the Pope's call for the exchange of prisoners in the "all for all" format.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Russia is holding 403 Ukrainian women in captivity, including many civilians illegally captured by the occupiers. Their detention in captivity does not comply with the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War.
