The Ombudsman stressed that "the task is to return absolutely everyone". However, Russia can disrupt this process at any time.
In the coming weeks, Ukraine and Russia may conduct another exchange of prisoners of war. Over the past two weeks, there has been some progress in negotiations with Russia.
This was reported by Dmytro Lubinets, the Ukrainian Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights, during a telethon.
"I hope that this year this exchange process will show consistency. I hope that in the coming weeks we will again be able to welcome our heroes back home," said the Ombudsman.
