About 3400 Ukrainian military are in Russian captivity

Since the beginning of the full-scale war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, 3392 Ukrainian military are in Russian captivity. In addition, almost 15,000 people are considered missing. This was reported by the Commissioner of the President on ensuring the rights of defenders Alyona Verbytska.
