The latest prisoner swap has resulted in the freeing of 130 Ukrainians from Russian captivity, the Head of the Office of the President  Andriy Yermak announced on Telegram on April 16.

They include military personnel, border guards, National Guard members, sailors, and State Special Transport Service employees, including soldiers s who had been taken prisoner in the Bakhmut, Soledar, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson zones.

“Our people are returning home. Easter! The quintessence of this holiday is hope," Yermak stressed, and provided several photos of the jubiliant freed Ukrainians.

This was the second prisoner exchange in a week.  Last Monday, 100 Ukrainian POWs were freed in this way.

Yermak stressed the Coordination Headquarters on the Treatment of Prisoners of War is working hard to return as many Ukrainians held captive by the Russians as possible.
