This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk.

These are thousands of bodies of occupiers.

And we ask that the bodies of Russian occupiers leave the territory of Ukraine and go to the Russian Federation.
The Russian Federation needs to know how many of these bodies and how many occupants are lying on Ukrainian soil today.”

“We appeal once again to the Russians: recover the bodies of your children and husbands.
Otherwise, there will be thousands of them, I ask again,” Vereshchuk said in a video message.
