“Sixty-two fallen heroes have returned to their homeland,” reads the announcement of the ministry responsible for the integration of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.

According to the ministry, it was possible to return the bodies of Ukrainian servicemen killed in the Olenivka prison in the occupied part of the Ukrainian Donetsk region, where dozens of prisoners were killed in shelling, for which Kyiv and Moscow blame each other.

“We brought back those who were in hell itself and defended Ukraine. The memory of the heroes is eternal,” said the Plenipotentiary for the missing Oleg Kotenko.

The ministry described the talks held for this exchange as “extremely difficult”.

The Russian side did not announce the exchange and did not comment on the announcement of the Ukrainian ministry.

How many bodies of Russian soldiers were handed over to Russia is not specified, as is the location where the exchange took place.

The Olenifka prison in the Donetsk region, where Ukrainian prisoners, including fighters from the “Azov” battalion, were held, was bombed on July 29. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, 50 prisoners were killed and 73 were wounded.

The Russian side had announced that the prison area was bombarded by Ukrainian military with missiles from the HIMARS systems.

The general staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine blamed Russian forces.

CNN’s investigation concluded that the Russian version is more likely a fabrication, while the possibility that the prison building was hit by a missile from a HIMARS launcher is out of the question.
