‘111 hostages remaining, nine of them are held in Russia; another 499 are missing,’ Vasyl Hrytsak, the Head of Ukraine’s security service, said at a briefing in Kyiv on Friday.

Previously, Ukraine’s president Petro Poroshenko said that the release of Ukrainian hostages very much depends on Russia now.

Iryna Gerashchenko, First Deputy Parliamentary Speaker and the representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian subgroup of Minsk trilateral contact group added that the EU officials would make more efforts for this issue (the issue of hostages in Donbas and tortures that they endure) to sound even clearer in the political circles across the EU.
