One person refuses to return to Ukraine during prisoners’ swap

One person refused to go to the territory controlled by Kiev within the framework of the exchange of prisoners between Ukraine and the Donetsk People's Republic, which was held yesterday near the Mayorsk checkpoint in the suburbs of Gorlovka, stated the Ombudsman for Human Rights in the Donetsk People's Republic Daria Morozova.

"One person refused to go to Ukraine," she said.

Earlier it was reported that the exchange of prisoners between the Republics of Donbass and Ukraine had been completed. It was held in two stages. First, Lugansk and Kiev exchanged prisoners at the Ukrainian checkpoint, and then the process between the Ukrainian side and Donetsk took place at the DPR checkpoint. Representatives of the OSCE SMM, the ICRC, and authorized representatives from Ukraine and the People's Republics followed the procedure.
