Ukrainian serviceman Roman Savkov has been released from the militants’ captivity in Donbas.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko posted on Facebook: “I have just congratulated the liberated from captivity serviceman of the 92nd brigade Roman Savkov, who was captured under Krasnohorivka. Roman, welcome home. I'm happy we made it."

Poroshenko added that he instructed to provide the released soldier with the necessary medical examination and treatment.

On January 15, President Poroshenko pardoned a citizen, who had committed a grave crime against Ukraine, in order to give impetus to the next wave of the liberation of Ukrainian hostages.

As reported, the large-scale liberation of hostages took place in Donbas on December 27, 2017. A total of 73 Ukrainians returned from the occupied territory, namely “cyborgs” and other Ukrainian fighters, public activists and volunteers as well as scientist and historian Ihor Kozlovsky.
