Comment of the Human Rights Ombudsman in the Donetsk People’s Republic on the “all for all” exchange of POWs

Comments and statements of the Ombudsman News

As part of the implementation of paragraphs five and six of the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, the Ukrainian side asked us to send in writing a proposal for the POWs exchange under the “all for all” formula. We already did it. Thus, the exchange of the confirmed persons on both sides will be performed, that is, through the formula “618 for 47”. I note that there are 42 people wanted by Ukraine in the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic and 5 in the Lugansk People’s Republic. Judging by the statements of certain representatives of Ukraine in the humanitarian subgroup, it can be concluded that the Ukrainian side to the conflict is ready to fulfill its obligations. Now we are waiting for an official written response from the authorized representatives of Kiev on peaceful settlement in Donbass.
