“62 people, who, according to Ukraine, are accused of “serious crimes”, have also been the subject to the conversation” – Morozova explained. – Ukraine’s final say was that there will be no exchange without these 62 people. It was decided to make the exchange through “all for all” formula – confirmed for confirmed.”
The Ombudsman believes that it would be extremely difficult to perform the “all for all” exchange before the end of hostilities, since Ukrainian security forces detain the supporters of the Republic almost every day. Therefore, it is expedient to exchange those confirmed by both sides. “The discussion of the exchange process lasted for more than two hours in the subgroup meeting”, – Morozova added.
Let us recall that the DPR side has repeatedly called upon for the exchange through “all for all” formula, agreed in Minsk, but each time Kiev impeded decisions on the issue. At the meeting of February 2, the negotiators made considerable progress in the cause of approving the list of prisoners of war. The work is carried out in the framework of the Minsk format. The parties also agreed to involve the UN Human Rights representatives.
