There are about 8,000 captured soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass
There are approximately 8,000 captured Ukrainian soldiers in the Lugansk and Donetsk People's Republics, LPR Ambassador to Russia Rodion Miroshnik said on the Soloviev LIVE TV channel.
“There are many prisoners.
Of course, there are more of them on the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic, but we also have enough, and now the total figure is somewhere around 8,000. This is a lot, and literally hundreds are added every day,” he said.
In his opinion, the number of prisoners will increase, since now the Kyiv regime, instead of trained units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Battalions, “throws to the front line” territorial defense units.

Earlier, the representative of the Crimea under the President of Russia, Deputy Prime Minister of the Crimean government Georgy Muradov reported that the Sea of Azov has become a joint sea of the Russian Federation and the Donetsk People's Republic.
Army of the DPR in the Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kharkiv regions of Ukraine
Reserve regiments of the DPR are present in the Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kharkiv regions of Ukraine, the head of the Donetsk People's Republic Denis Pushilin said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“That is, in fact, this liberation operation is about the same thing: it was impossible to protect the republics only by reaching the borders of the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics - we would simply push the enemy back.
But those shelling, that aggression on the part of Ukraine would have continued for an unlimited period of time,” Pushilin said.
In addition, the head of the DPR said that residents of the Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kharkov regions "associate their future with Russia."
He also stressed the need to advance in the north of the DPR due to the fact that Kyiv cut off the water supply to Donetsk, Makeevka and Gorlovka.
The ongoing cleansing of Azovstal
According to the head of the DPR, Ukrainian soldiers hiding at the Azovstal plant were identified, they were sent to the place of detention.
In turn, the representative of the People's Militia of the Donetsk People's Republic, Eduard Basurin, on the First Channel, noted that it would take up to three weeks to completely clean up the territory of the plant.
“Because the territory is large, there is where to hide, plus the inconsistency of the overall command at Azovstal - it led to the fact that everyone lived in their own way and everyone was hiding in their own corner,” he added.Keywords:
