Russian Pilots Exchanged for Azovstal Defenders

The Russian Ministry of Defense and Ukrainian Presidential Administration Head Yervak have confirmed that a prisoner exchange swapped forty-five Azovstal Plant defenders for three Russian pilots.

The message from the Russian MoD reads below:

“As a result of a complex negotiation process, three Russian military personnel, pilots of the Russian Aerospace Forces, who were in mortal danger in captivity, were returned from the territory controlled by the Kyiv regime.”
