Comment of the DPR Ombudsman following the results of Minsk negotiations of October 5

Comments and statements of the Ombudsman News

Ukrainian side of the conflict could have tried to pretend that they adhere to the fifth and sixth paragraphs of the Minsk Complex of measures, taking back their deceived soldiers, who are now on the territory of Donetsk and Lughansk People’s Republics. Instead, they offered to pass warm clothes for them. In other words, Kiev makes his prisoners of war understand that the exchange is not going to be realized soon and they have to be content with those closing doles.
It is a real pity about Ukrainian patriots, who believed in the propaganda and implicitly trusted to the present Ukrainian government, going against their fellow brothers. I really sympathize to our men, because they had been trapped. I hereby underline, that we haven`t forgotten about them, that we fight to give freedom to all men enlisted. I feel sorry for those mothers, who still believe Kiev and his authorities in Minsk, those who still think that the authorities make efforts to liberate their children. Ukraine misinforms everyone: either the world community or those poor mothers and relatives on both sides of the conflict.
Unfortunately, our subgroup hasn`t managed to come to an agreement on the exchange of prisons of war yet. We insisted in the earliest settlement of the issue, but the Ukrainian side doesn`t want to liberate their soldiers and to grant freedom to our men.
