Lubinets also noted that the parties discussed the issue of mechanisms for the return of Ukrainian civilian hostages. According to him, the meeting was also attended by Nariman Dzhelial, the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, who had been held captive by the Russians since 2021. He shared his thoughts with the Turkish Ombudsman "as a person who knows firsthand about Russian captivity."
