The families of the captured defenders of Mariupol appealed to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres with a request to hand over warm clothes to the captives and speed up the process of extracting the captives.


The head of the patronage service of the "Azov" regiment, Olena Tolkachova, said this on Espresso.

"A letter was written, created, and signed to the UN Secretary-General to supervise compliance with the Geneva Convention, which is cynically violated by our enemy. We have more than 10 points that are violated. In this letter, we asked to speed up the process of extracting prisoners and find a third country, which could accept them," she said

According to Tolkacheva, they also appealed so that warm thing could be handed over.

"There is information that they do not have normal warm clothes, and the conditions are not very proper. Overcrowded cells and medical aid is provided nominally. We collected 5 thousand signatures under the letter. We have very high hopes for the UN," concluded the head of the regiment's patronage service.

The extraction procedure is the process of withdrawing the personnel of any army to an area controlled by friendly forces. In the case of the "Mariupol" garrison soldiers, Ukraine offers to take the prisoners to a third country without the possibility of returning to the country until the end of the war.
