Ukrainians arrive home after prisoner swap with pro-Russian separatists

Ukrainian prisoners were greeted by their family and President Volodymyr Zelensky after being freed by pro-Russian separatists.

Ukraine's government received 76 captives, with the pro-Russian separatists reportedly taking 124 as part of a prisoner exchange.

Relations between the two countries deteriorated in 2014, when Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimean peninsula.
