Comment from Daria Morozova following Minsk talks

Comments and statements of the Ombudsman News

The meeting of the humanitarian subgroup showed again that the responsibility for non-fulfilment of the sixth paragraph of the Package of Measures for the Implementation if the Minsk Agreements lies squarely with Kiev. The representatives of the Ukrainian side do not attend the talks, so no results have been achieved. Also, the Ukrainian side refuses to provide the information we had requested in writing.

So far, Kiev has not voiced its position on the prisoner exchange. The negotiations cannot move from the deadlock for six months now: Kiev delegates show utter lack of interest in the second stage of the exchange.

I call on the Ukrainian side to shift from highlight declarations in social networks and come to the negotiating table. People on both sides of the delimitation line should be liberated. They shouldn’t be held in prisons due to the absence of the political will of the Ukrainian leadership.
