No confirmation of these reports came from official and independent sources.

During previous stages of prisoner swap, released persons underwent treatment at the Scientific and Practical Center for Preventive and Clinical Medicine of the State Administration of Ukraine.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the newly elected Prosecutor General of Ukraine Ruslan Riaboshapka said that the exchange of prisoners with Russia took place and Ukrainian political prisoners, including Sentsov, Balukh, and Hryb, were returning to Ukraine.

Relatives of prisoners of war were allegedly informed that they had already arrived in Ukraine.

At the same time, the Office of the President's Office refuted the reports on the completion of swap, adding that the process was ongoing and the official reports would follow once it is completed.
