Ukraine has returned another 35 troops and one civilian from Russian captivity, presidential chief-of-staff Andriy Yermak said on Telegram on Nov. 23.

“Another prisoner swap has taken place,” he said.

“We have brought 36 of our people home – one civilian and 35 servicemen.”

According to Yermak, those released included soldiers who had defended Mariupol, Azovstal steelworks, as well as military personnel from the National Guard who were captured at the Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the first days of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
