These visits are aimed at documenting detention conditions of the POWs, he added. “It is important that we can talk confidentially to the detainees on both sides of the contact line,” stressed Mr. Frisch.

Mazchenko said that decent conditions are provided for all Ukrainian servicemen. “They are in the same conditions as all other inmates. They receive seasonal clothes, three meals a day, sanitary treatment, and daily walks. All the requirements are met,” the director of SIZO added.
