According to Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, consultations are underway on several issues, including prisoners of war.

Podolyak added that now the big problem is the escalation of the war.
“And I want to emphasize separately that today there is another problem: what is getting bigger and bigger is the escalation of war, hatred, violation of the customs and rules of warfare not only on the fields. Both sides are calling for the destruction of both peoples and this all leads to conflicts There is a video with a violation of the Geneva Conventions in relation to prisoners of war,” the representative of Ukraine said.
