China News Service, June 8. According to the Associated Press report on the 7th, Russia began to hand over the remains of the fallen Ukrainian soldiers at the Azov Steel Plant. The remains of dozens of Ukrainian soldiers have arrived in Kyiv and are awaiting DNA tests to confirm their identities, the leader of the Ukrainian military force “Azov Battalion” said.
On April 21, local time, thick smoke rose from the Azov Steel Plant in Mariupol, Ukraine.
Earlier, Russia and Ukraine fought fiercely at the steel plant in the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol. The Associated Press reported that the Ukrainian armed forces, including the Azov Battalion, had been defending the area for nearly three months. These forces surrendered in May under a Russian offensive from the ground, sea and air. It is unclear how many remains are still in the factory.
On the 4th local time, the Ukrainian government issued a statement that the Ukrainian side and the Russian side exchanged the remains of the fallen soldiers in the Zaporozhye region on the 2nd in accordance with the “160 for 160” plan reached by the two sides. The Associated Press reported that this is the first time the two sides have exchanged remains since the conflict broke out.
Russia’s “Newspaper” and the Russian Satellite News Agency reported the news, citing the social media of Russia’s first channel war correspondent, but so far, no official statement from the relevant Russian departments has been received.Return to Sohu, see more
