“The 74th POW, a Ukrainian woman, was released as the rest 73 prisoners of war. As she was discharged from detention facilities and has no ties on unoccupied territories (of Ukraine, - ed.), who can support her and whom she’d like to hug after her long illegal detention, she said next: “We are thankful to Ukraine, but I want to hug my family”. Her relatives reside on the territory of Donetsk. I see no reason to speak about treason in this case,” Lukovska said.
