This is a continuation of a state project designed to inform the Russian military about the opportunity to lay down their arms and save their health and life.
As part of the work of the coordination headquarters, a Unified Center and a round-the-clock hotline for receiving applications from the Russian military and their families were launched.
About it informed Coordinating headquarters for the treatment of prisoners of war.
“This is a continuation of a state project designed to inform the Russian military about the opportunity to lay down their arms and save their health and life. The state project” I want to live “is designed to help Russian army soldiers safely surrender to the Ukrainian Armed Forces,” the message says.
It is also noted that Russians are guaranteed maintenance in accordance with the norms of the Geneva Conventions. Ukraine needs to replenish the exchange fund in order to bring its defenders home.
For information on how to surrender, Russian servicemen or their relatives and friends should call the round-the-clock numbers: +38 066 580 34 98, +38 093 119 29 84.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on the Russian military to surrender and stressed that Ukraine treats them in accordance with the Geneva Conventions. He noted that Ukraine needs to replenish the exchange fund, because Russia has more Ukrainian prisoners of war than Ukraine has Russian ones.
