800 Azov regiment soldiers are still in Russian captivity, 40 women are among them
Russia still holds almost 800 Azov soldiers as prisoners of war. More than 40 women are among them, and some are pregnant, Patronage Service of the Azov Regiment reports.
According to Olha Kravchenko, head of the department for work with prisoners of war and their families of the Azov Patronage Service, pregnant women do not receive proper medical care. Prisoners of war have not only combat injuries but also chronic diseases.
“All projectile fragments remain inside the bodies — surgery is needed,” Kravchenko said.
She stressed that the UN Mission and the Red Cross should have access to captured Ukrainians, but Russia does not allow them.
