Twelve Ukrainian prisoners have been returned home from captivity – 10 military and two civilians, Ukraine says, APA reports citing CNN.

Five of them were seriously wounded, according to the Coordination Headquarters for the Treatment of Prisoners of War.

The soldiers were captured in various parts of the front lines, it added.

On March 24, “Ukraine voluntarily and unconditionally returned to Russia all five severely wounded prisoners who were transportable,” the headquarters said, but added that Russia had released “only five seriously wounded Ukrainians, not all of them, as required by the international conventions signed by Russia.”

The Russian decision showed “a blatant lack of interest in establishing further exchanges for particularly vulnerable categories of prisoners and civilian hostages,” the headquarters said.
