Quote from Yermak: "Among them are four sailors, two National Guardsmen, one soldier of the Territorial Defence Forces, as well as three civilians - a married couple and a man who has been considered to be missing. Two officers and seven privates and sergeants are among the soldiers who have been released.

Warriors who defended Mariupol, the Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant and Zmiinyi (Snake) Island are going home."

Details: According to Yermak, 98 Ukrainians were released over the past week.
