MOSCOW (AA) - The Russian Defense Ministry announced on Saturday that 63 servicemen returned home through another war prisoners swap with Ukraine.
“Persons of the 'sensitive category' are included in the group of released Russian servicemen, thanks to the mediation of the leadership of the United Arab Emirates,“ the ministry said.
