KIEV, December 27. /TASS/. At least 490 people are listed as prisoners of war in Donbass, the centre for POW release reporting to Ukraine’s Defence Ministry said on the Facebook social network on Saturday.
On Friday, 146 prisoners were set free, with “privates and officers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the National Guard, Interior Ministry and volunteer battalions among them,” the centre said.
Another 490 people are held captive, according to the published lists.
On Saturday another four people were handed to Kiev.
“We have gotten four guys, not as a swap,” the aide to the Ukrainian deputy defence minister, Vasily Bydik, wrote on his page in Facebook.
