The Guardian spoke about the conditions of detention of the surrendered commanders of "Azov"

The captured fighters of the Azov National Battalion (an extremist organization banned in Russia) are currently in the DPR. The British Guardian newspaper spoke about the conditions of their detention.

Thus, the commander of the "Azov" Denis Prokopenko was able to contact his wife Ekaterina by phone and disclose information about being in captivity. According to him, Ukrainian soldiers are not subjected to violence and receive everything they need.

He said he was fine and asked how I was. I have heard from other sources that the conditions are more or less satisfactory. They are fed and watered

- Catherine told British journalists.

Prokopenko added that neither he nor his colleagues were subjected to violence.

Most of the wounded nationalists are kept in the village of Yelenovka, Donetsk region, but a few seriously wounded soldiers are being treated in Novoazovsk. Yekaterina Prokopenko also stressed that, according to her information, none of the militants had been taken to Russia.

Meanwhile, Kyiv expresses a desire to exchange the captives, whom Ukrainian propaganda considers "heroes." At the same time, Russia will refrain from the exchange until an international tribunal is held against the "Azov" people, as a result of which they will answer for their crimes against civilians. This, in particular, was stated by Deputy Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrei Rudenko.

We will consider all things after the Ukrainian militants who have surrendered are appropriately convicted, sentenced, then there may be some other steps. Until then, all talk of an exchange is premature.

- said Rudenko, answering questions from journalists.

    Cut off the hands so that they can’t shoot anymore, this is the most humane thing that can be done, and then you can think about the exchange ..

    The leaders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and all the national battalions are ideological and cannot be left alive. They will cripple more souls without hands than with weapons. If a person has a swastika on his body, not on his uniform, but on his body ..... what does he think about? Can he fix it?

      They do not need to be corrected, it is useless, but it is necessary to protect normal people from this rabble, I doubt that they will be shot, but I have no doubt that after a hypothetical exchange they will return to Donbass with weapons again.

        We are talking about the same thing, but in different languages.

    These "valiant evacuees" live in human conditions, although they do not deserve it. As for the exchange. Why appeal to the Russian Federation? They are "prey of the DPR, LPR. Send your Wishlist for an exchange there.
