In the past few weeks alone, the project hotline has received more than 2,000 calls.
This is reported by the Coordination Headquarters for the PoW Treatment.
26-year-old Russian Mykhail Kulikov from Orsk was sent to the front in Ukraine five days after receiving the summons. However, while still in Russia, he called the “hotline” of the “I want to live” project and received instructions on how to correctly and safely surrender to the Ukrainians.
All citizens from the temporarily-occupied territories who were forcibly mobilized to the ranks of the occupier’s troops can take advantage of this opportunity. For information on how to surrender, Russian servicemen or their relatives should call the 24-hour numbers: +38 066 580 34 98 and +38 093 119 29 84.
The “I want to live” project is designed to help Russian servicemen safely surrender to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Russians are guaranteed treatment in accordance with the norms of the Geneva Conventions. Ukraine needs to replenish the exchange fund in order to return its defenders home.
