14:29 02 August Kyiv, Ukraine

The Russian side agreed to hand over the bodies of prisoners of war who died in the explosion in Yelenovka, but "upon completion of the investigation."

Dmitry Lubinets, Commissioner for Human Rights, announced this on air of the telethon.
“I can report that we received a signal that the Russians are ready to return the bodies of our heroes, but after the end of the so-called investigation. We have not yet received a response to clarify how much time is needed for the investigation. But we are waiting,” Lubinets said.
According to him, when our servicemen are captured, the International Committee of the Red Cross at the request of Ukraine finds out the names of the prisoners. In the future, they and the UN will guarantee the safety of the captives and their return home through an exchange.
"At my request to give a list of what is happening with specific "Azov", I received an answer that all information about the servicemen will be received only by relatives. As an Ombudsman, I can only get general information about the dead and wounded,” added Lubinets.
The plenipotentiary noted that during the informal communication, representatives of the Red Cross assured that "they are doing everything to provide information to relatives."
