The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) reports that it welcomes the efforts of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church in the matter of releasing hostages, reports the SSU press centre.

"The Security Service of Ukraine welcomes any steps taken by the Russian authorities to unblock the process of releasing the hostages," the statement said. "We believe that the joining of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church Cyril to the joint efforts of the heads of all world confessions in the framework of the initiative of the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organizations will facilitate the speedy return of each of the hostages to their homes."

Patriarch Kirill called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to continue his efforts to release prisoners of war in the Donbass, which have been repeatedly discussed with the leadership of the Russian Federation at his request and at the request of Metropolitan Onufry.
