Video from the Gaza Strip shows a Red Cross vehicle transporting Yelena Trupanov, 50, and her mother Irena Tati, 73, after they were released by Hamas in what the terror group called a “gesture” to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trupanob and Tati, who have dual Israeli and Russian citizenship, were kidnapped from Kibbutz Nir Oz during the Hamas-led onslaught in southern Israel on October 7.

Yelena’s husband, Vitaly, was killed during the attack while her son Sasha and his girlfriend Sapir Cohen are still hostages.
