Ukraine appreciates Türkiye for supporting Russia-Ukraine prisoner exchange

(MENAFN) Ukraine on late Wednesday expressed gratitude for Türkiye for its role in a prisoner swap between Ukraine and Russia, hours following the Turkish president publicized the exchange.

“We are bringing our people home. The exchange has just finished. Today we have 215 pieces of good news. 215!” Ukrainian Leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated in a new video speech.

He also stated they included five Ukrainian commanders “for whom we had to carry out the biggest, the longest, the most difficult fight. They were threatened with the worst. Five superheroes.”

“Ukraine agreed with Türkiye – I spoke about this with (Turkish) President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan – that our five commanders who are being released from captivity will be in complete safety, in comfortable conditions and under the personal protection of the President of Türkiye until the end of the war. But we will provide the opportunity for their families to see them,” on the words of Zelenskyy.
