ISTANBUL (AA) - Ukraine’s president said Thursday that more than 1,300 Ukrainians have been liberated from Russian captivity since Feb. 24, when the war started.
In a video message, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that “today, another 50 Ukrainians were brought home from Russian captivity,” adding “we will bring back all the rest! All of Ukraine will be free. All Ukrainians will be at home.”
The president noted that a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council was held in which they “considered numerous facts of connections of certain religious circles in Ukraine with the aggressor state.”
“All bodies responsible for ensuring national security must intensify measures to identify and counter the subversive activities of Russian special services in the religious environment of Ukraine. And apply personal sanctions -- the surnames will be made public soon,” he added.
