“I turned to the ICRC with a request to intensify work on visiting Russian servicemen held in Ukraine, especially the wounded,” Moskalkova said after a meeting with Spolyarich in Moscow.

The parties also agreed to work together to assist the civilian population in evacuation, family reunification and the search for missing persons.

Earlier, the International Committee of the Red Cross expressed its readiness to mediate in the exchange of prisoners of war between Russia and Ukraine.
