Advisor to SBU chief: 118 hostages currently held in Luhansk, Donetsk

Advisor to chief of the Security Service of Ukraine Yuri Tandyt has stated that 118 hostages are currently held in Donetsk and Luhansk.

He said this to journalists today, answering the question by an Ukrinform correspondent.

"There are 118 hostages now in Donetsk and Luhansk. The number has increased as several people were detained in Donetsk and they automatically became hostages," Tandyt said.

He noted that, unfortunately, the Russian Federation continued to use hostages to exert pressure on Ukraine.
