TV Rain, the last independent TV channel in Russia under constant threat of closure, has posted on Facebook two contrasting film clips showing the stark difference between how Nadiya Savchenko, the Ukrainian soldier taken captive by Russian-backed militants and held in a Russian prison for 709 days was greeted, and how two GRU officers, Aleksandr Aleksandrov and Yevgeny Yerofeyev were met.

On the left is Savchenko arriving at Boryspil Airport in Kiev to a cheering crowd, giving a rousing speech about her determination to fight for Ukraine and expressing sorrow about all those killed in the war in Ukraine and those Ukrainians who remain as POWs and political prisoners of Russia.

On the right, the two GRU officers, greeted only by their own wives, and silently filmed by the Kremlin's propaganda channel, RT, which was not allowed to ask them any questions. They did not issue any statements.
