In the Zaporizhzhia region, the occupying forces continue to hold 103 civilians in captivity. This was reported by Ukrinform with reference to the Zaporizhzhia State Military Administration.
In total, 238 cases of abduction of civilians by the occupying troops have been recorded in the region. However, 135 people have already been released from captivity.
As Iryna Vereshchuk, the head of the Ministry of Reintegration, said the day before, the Russians are holding several hundred Ukrainian civilians captive. According to her, people are abducted in order to demand an exchange for their military.
At the same time, Ukraine demands that the occupiers stop doing this and exchange only the military for the military.
