The Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (the DPR) Aleksandr Zakharchenko confirmed the fact that he, together with the Head of the Lugansk People’s Republic (the LPR) Igor Plotnitsky, had met with the MP of the Verkhovna Rada Nadezhda Savchenko, the Head of the state said about it to journalists during a press-conference.
“The meeting really took place. The issue of implementing the Minsk agreements and the article of swapping captives by the formula “all for all” were raised. We offered our variants. I am pleased that not only Ukraine’s representatives to the Contact Group but also the representatives of the Verkhovna Rada want this process to be over. No concrete agreements were reached,” said Aleksandr Zakharchenko.
Exchange of captives by the formula “all for all” is one of the key articles of the Minsk agreements. This issue is regularly raised at the session of the humanitarian subgroup of the Contact Group. However, no direct results have been reached yet.
