The National Security and Defense Council has launched the Occupier website, which provides information about russian prisoners of war.
This was reported by the Center for Countering Disinformation at the NSDC.
“The Occupier website is an information resource of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, which provides information about prisoners of war from the russian armed forces who have invaded Ukraine since 24 February 2022,” the statement says.
It is noted that the web portal will be available to russian citizens, in particular the families of soldiers or their acquaintances, to obtain information about the condition and location of prisoners. Using the portal's services, relatives of russian prisoners of war will be able to contact representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
“We emphasize that russian servicemen are treated in accordance with the Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War (Geneva Convention), in particular they are provided with food, clothing and treatment, are kept in normal conditions,” the statement says.
Ukrainians, upon return from captivity in russia, report inhuman conditions: there are wounded with sepsis and amputations.
Earlier, the Ministry of Defense has prepared instructions for russians on how to surrender properly. For Ukrainians, in turn, they developed a guide on how to capture. The Deputy Minister of Defense also shared a phone number “which you can call and get help.”
