“200 people are under our control. President Putin particularly insisted on one (Medvedchuk – ed.). We have already sent him to Russia,” the Turkish leader said.
The head of the Turkish state also emphasized that those released as part of the prisoner exchange action are “guests of Turkey.”
It will be recalled that Ukraine handed over to Russia the former People’s Deputy and one of the leaders of the “Opposition Platform – For Life” Viktor Medvedchuk. He was exchanged for 200 Ukrainian defenders.
In total, Ukraine managed to free 215 military personnel, including foreign volunteers and defenders of “Azovstal”, in particular: Denys “Redis” Prokopenko, Serhiy “Volyn” Volynskyi, Svyatoslav “Kalina” Palamar, Oleg Khomenko, Yevhen Bova.
