The head of the Mariupol patrol police Mykhailo Vershinin, who defended Azovstal, and a number of other defenders of Mariupol were released from Russian captivity.

There has been no official confirmation from the authorities about the exchange yet, but photos of a number of Mariupol defenders at large have already appeared on the Internet, writes Public.

Co-commander of the SSO “Azov-Kyiv” regiment Maksym Zhorin also reported on the exchange.

“Finally, we were able to return another part of the defenders of Mariupol, including the fighters of the “Azov” regiment. Tonight was the exchange we’ve been waiting for. Hugging your friends, brothers and sisters who have finally returned is the best emotion that can happen! All the details will come later,” Zhorin said.

Mykhailo Vershinin has been in captivity since May of this year. He got there together with other defenders of Mariupol, who were blocked in the territory of “Azovstal” and left there after several months of defense by order of the command.

Kateryna Polishchuk (“Ptashka”) is also a paramedic of the “Hospitaliers” medical battalion, a participant in the defense of Mariupol. The girl became known to the general public after the publication of a video where she sings in the basements of “Azovstal”.

And also Mykhailo Dianov – a military man under contract who defended Mariupol. A photo of Mykhailo with a metal structure on his arm was published by the “Azov” regiment on May 10.

Mykhailo’s sister learned that her brother was alive, but wounded, thanks to the photo. Even later, at the end of the month, she saw a video showing Mykhailo from Azovstal leading the convoy.

It is reported that the commanders of “Azov” Denys Prokopenko “Radis”, Svyatoslav Palamar “Kalyna” and Serhiy “Volyna” also returned home.

10 foreign soldiers serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine were released from Russian captivity. It is noted that it was possible to return those who were “sentenced” to the death penalty in the so-called “DNR”.

It is reported UNIAN with reference to Reuters.

So, five Britons, two Americans, a Croat, a Moroccan and a Swedish citizen were returned from captivity.

British politician Robert Jerrick said that Aiden Aslin is among those released. He was captured at the beginning of 2022, and then sentenced to death by a court in the so-called “DNR”.

Russia also released 39-year-old US citizen Alexander Druke and 27-year-old Andy Gein. They were captured in June during hostilities in eastern Ukraine.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sweden, Ann Linde, confirmed that among those released was a Swedish citizen captured in the port of Mariupol, who was threatened with the death sentence under the laws of the “DNR”.
