On May 31, Ukraine returned 75 people from Russian captivity. Military serviceman Kostyantyn Myrhorodskyi, who has not seen his native land for more than two years, sang the song “Ukraine” together with his comrades.

After the exchange procedure, when the Ukrainian defenders were taken home by bus, Kostyantyn Myrhorodskyi and his comrades performed the song “Ukraine” by Taras Petrynenko. The clip was published by Suspilne Novintia.

On the last day of spring, the fourth exchange of prisoners since the beginning of the year took place. According to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi, 75 people were returned as part of the exchange.

Another 75 of our people returned to Ukraine. Soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard, border guards, four civilians – all of them are already in their native land, Zelensky wrote.

Among those rescued from captivity are 70 men and five women. In particular, six officers and 65 soldiers and sergeants. Among others, 43 released people belong to the Armed Forces of Ukraine (including TrO fighters), 21 to NSU, and 7 to DPSU. Also, 4 civilian women returned to Ukraine.

19 defenders of Zmiiny Island, 14 military personnel who guarded the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, as well as ten defenders of Mariupol managed to return to their native land. Ukrainians captured in the Kharkiv, Kyiv, Kherson, Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhya and Sumy directions are returning home, said the Coordinating Staff, which operates in the system of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Military serviceman Kostyantyn Myrhorodskyi, who returned from captivity today, sang the song “Ukraine” on the bus together with his brothers. He was in captivity for more than two years.

The song “Ukraine” is considered the unofficial anthem of Ukraine. Its author is national artist and national legend Taras Petrynenko. The first title of this song is “While we love.” It was first performed by Petrynenko in 1987 on the First Channel of Ukrainian Radio in the morning information and music program.
