Donetsk, May 20 – DAN. The DPR is fully ready for an “all for all” prisoner exchange, as stipulated by the Minsk Agreements, said DPR Ombudswoman representing Republic at the humanitarian subgroup Minsk talks Daria Morozova.
Earlier in the day the Ukrainian president Vladimir Zelensky spoke in the country’s parliament and said that he is ready for a dialog on ceasefire in Donbass and the first step towards it is the return of all Ukrainian prisoners.
“The DPR is fully ready for an “all for all” prisoner exchange, as stipulated by the Minsk Agreements. This is our position and we have been insisting on fulfilling this article in full for more than a year and a half, after the first stage of the swap was carried out in December 2017.”
She said that Zelensky’s statement is “reassuring news for the families of people held in prisons for several years.” Still, public statements are not enough to relaunch the process, Morozova said. “We are waiting for clear proposals and complete lists”. *ot
