UAE mediation efforts succeed with exchange of 180 captives between Russia and Ukraine


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced the success of mediation efforts by the UAE regarding the exchange of war captives between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Ukraine to release 180 captives.
The Ministry emphasised that the success of the new mediation, which is the fifth since the beginning of this year, is the outcome of the UAE leveraging its distinct ties and partnership with both sides, including as a reliable mediator among both parties.
The Ministry expressed its appreciation to the governments of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Ukraine for their cooperation to make the exchange process a success.
The Ministry also affirmed the UAE’s commitment to continuing efforts aimed at finding a peaceful solution to the conflict, stressing the importance of resorting to dialogue, de-escalation, and diplomacy, as the only ways to resolve the conflict, and mitigating the humanitarian repercussions resulting from the crisis.
Notably, the UAE’s mediation efforts succeeded since the beginning of this year in completing four exchanges of war captives between Russia and Ukraine, in addition to a successful exchange of two prisoners between the United States and the Russian Federation in December 2022.
