already been worked out :

 Russian fighters can call a hotline or submit information about themselves in a Telegram chatbot.

"After the appeal, a certain procedure will take place, where it will be determined how, in what way and where the Russian soldier will be able to surrender. But I cannot tell you about the procedure itself - how, what and where," - the representative of the Coordination Staff for Issues told reporters treatment of prisoners of war.

Matvienko emphasized that Ukraine guarantees prisoners full compliance with the Geneva Conventions: 

three meals a day, medical assistance and the opportunity to contact relatives.
