Russia and Ukraine have exchanged hundreds of prisoners of war under a deal sponsored by the United Arab Emirates. Ukrainian

authorities say that 230 Ukrainian prisoners of war returned home.

Russia's Defense Ministry says that 248 Russian servicemen have been freed from Ukrainian captivity.

The ministry says that the deal was made possible thanks to mediatory efforts by the United Arab Emirates. The massive prisoner exchange follows other such deals earlier in the war, which is nearing the two-year mark.
