Denys Prokopenko, commander of the Azov Battalion, called his wife, Kateryna, and told her about the "satisfactory" detention conditions the Azovstal defenders captured by the Russians were held in. However, the woman was not sure that her husband at the time of the conversation could speak frankly, she told The Guardian.

Quote"He said he was ‘OK’ and asked how I was. I’ve heard from other sources that the conditions are more or less satisfactory," Kateryna Prokopenko noted.

Also, according to her, Ukrainian fighters are given food, water, they are not subjected to violence.

Quote"What will happen next, of course, we don’t know but at the moment there are third parties — the UN and the Red Cross – who are controlling the situation," she added.

According to Prokopenko's wife, all the people taken from Azovstal are in the Russian-controlled territories of the Donetsk region. None of them, according to her, have been taken to Russia.

Context. Recall that at least 1,000 Ukrainian defenders, including members of the Azov Battalion, were taken to Russian-controlled territories last week. The Ukrainian side expects to be able to swap and release them, but some Russian officials have called for them to face trial or or even execution on "terrorism" charges.
