Comments and statements of the Ombudsman Media News

The Ombudsman of the Donetsk People’s Republic Daria Morozova expects Kiev representatives to provide response on the suggested mechanism of POW exchange.

Earlier Morozova said that she hoped the exchange between Kiev and DPR would transpire in Autumn 2019 provided that Kiev fully observes its obligations as regards the exchange.

“We have designed a preliminary mechanism of release, which would suit us and those to be exchanged. Ms Lutkovskaia (representative of Kiev in the Humanitarian Subgroup in Minsk Valeria Lutkovskaia – Ed.) took it under consideration and said she needed some time to decide if that would be acceptable for them,” said Morozova to journalists.

She added that DPR expects for the prompt response.

“If they accept the mechanism, two weeks will be enough for them to carry out the exchange. If so, we would be able to conduct the exchange before the end of September,” Morozova said.
