Soloshenko and Afanasyev released from hospital

Both Ukrainians underwent medical treatment after their release from Russia

Ukrainian prisoners recently released from Russia are now returning home after a treatment in hospital. Both Soloshenko and Afanasyev had to receive medical attention upon coming back to Ukraine.

Soloshenko says he will first visit his relatives in Poltava. He also promises to do all in his power to get all of the Ukrainians falsely imprisoned in Russia freed.

Afanasyev wants to stay in Kyiv since he cannot return to the Russian-occupied Crimea.

The two Ukrainians were exchanged this Tuesday for two separatist instigators that attempted to start a so-called people's government in Odesa.
