Mothers of Ukrainian prisoners of war held in Russia began to request not to return their sons to Ukraine because of fears that young people would either be sent back to the front or subjected to repression. Tatyana Moskalkova, Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia, told journalists about this, RIA Novosti reports.

“When I held a reception of Ukrainian citizens, prisoners of war in Sevastopol, most of them asked me to inform about their fate [their families]. Me and my staff did it to the fullest. Today I receive new appeals from Ukrainian mothers. They ask not to return their sons, because they believe that they will either be sent back to the front, or they will be subjected to repression, — Moskalkova said.

In addition, according to her, similar appeals were received from two Ukrainian prisoners of war. “A new category of appeals appears that were previously not inherent to us, related to the military theme,” — explained the Ombudsman.
