Russia and Ukraine exchanged dead bodies of their servicemen for the first time since the war started, says Ukraine’s Ministry of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories.
The exchange took place in the Zaporizhzhia region of Ukraine on 2 June; 160 bodies were offered for exchange by each side.
The exchange was first reported by Irina Kuksenkova of Russia’s Channel One. She said Russia had handed over the dead bodies of the Azovstal steelworks defenders to Ukraine. Russia has not commented on the matter as of now.
