DPR Ombudsman calls on Kiev to carry out prisoners’ exchange before December 25

Daria Morozova, Ombudsman of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has called on the Ukrainian side to carry out prisoners’ exchange before December 25, DPR Ombudsman states. 

“We are not against holding the prisoners’ exchange before December 25. Besides, we call upon the Ukrainian side to manage to carry out the procedure before the date,” said Morozova. 

She pointed out that the number and lists of those people who were to be exchanged had been already approved at the highest level. 

The last prisoners’ exchange between Ukraine and the Republics of Donbass was held in the fall 2016. 

Since then, it has been impossible to agree about a new exchange at the Minsk meetings: the Ukrainian side has been dragging on the process all the time, creating new problems and excuses.
