According to Ukraine, more than 3,500 Russian soldiers and their families have contacted the team.

The Ukrainian government says the program it created to lure Russian soldiers into surrender receives up to 100 requests a day.

The “I want to live” project was launched in September.

By calling a hotline or entering information into messaging apps, Russian troops can arrange the best way to surrender to Ukrainian forces.

Kyiv authorities claim to have received more than 3,500 communications from members of the occupation forces as well as their families.
