"The relatives of the deceased have been informed. The General Staff will bring the bodies to their families in the next two days.

"An attempt has been made to quickly exchange the fighter who was taken captive, but the Russian command once again disrupted it. The captive has talked to his family and other military, his condition is OK. The enemy continues using Ukrainian captives for blackmailing and political pressure over Ukrainian leadership, and does not live up to the prisoners exchange agreements reached in Minsk," Butusov wrote.
