More than 2,400 Ukrainian law enforcers taking part in a military operation in the breakaway southeast of the country are on the list of missing in action or taken captive, Ukrainian president’s envoy for the settlement of the situation in the country’s east, Irina Gerashchenko, posted on Facebook on Wednesday.
