Ukraine Invites Mothers of Prisoners of War to Pick Them Up in Kyiv
Captured Russian soldiers are sending tearful messages to their families back home as the grim reality of war is sinking in for the Russian people. One Russian POW recorded a message directly to his mother to reassure her he was still alive. “I want to say to my mom, ‘Wait for me. I will return,’” he said. Published reports say the Ukrainian Defense Ministry has even invited Russian mothers to come to the capital of Kyiv to pick up their captured sons and take them home.
