Russia planned to exchange collaborators for POWs - National Resistance Centre
Russia wanted to exchange imprisoned collaborators from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine for their captives
This is evidenced by documents accessed by activists of the Cyber Resistance, the National Resistance Centre reports.
"Activists of the Cyber Resistance have gained access to the data set of the Russian penitentiary service in the occupied territories of Luhansk region, which reveals the plans of the Russians to exchange imprisoned collaborators for their prisoners of war," the statement said.
This data indicates that the Russian prosecutor's office appealed to the head of the service in the temporarily occupied territories to provide it with lists for the possible exchange of prisoners of war to Ukraine.
In addition to people who have been imprisoned for a long time, the list also includes those whose arrests have not been officially reported.
"It is interesting that the list of those who have long been in the Russian prisons due to the internal disputes of the occupiers includes those whose arrest was not officially reported and who have recently been officially at large," the National Resistance Centre stressed.
- On January 31, Ukraine returned 207 Ukrainians from Russian captivity, including soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the National Guard, border guards and police officers.
