About 400 Ukrainians remain captive by the Russian mercenaries.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by the adviser to the SBU head Markiian Lubkivskyi on his Facebook page.

"The terrorists voiced a number of "1,379 'DPR' mercenaries" allegedly held by the Ukrainian party, which is not true," he said. "As well as the statement that "16 POWs whom they returned to the Ukrainian side today were the last remaining in captivity in the so-called DPR" is not true. We expect 400 more Ukrainian captives to be returned," Lubkivskyi said.

He reminded that the Ukrainian party abides by the all-for-all principle in returning its soldiers, officers, and civilians home. "We are ready to abide by this principle in the future," the adviser to the SBU head said. "Despite all the difficulties of the mutual exchange of POWs, we continue and will not stop it until the last Ukrainian returns home," Lubkivskyi said.

It was reported earlier by Censor.NET that the 'DPR' terrorists announced halt in prisoners exchange.
