Kiev has asked the special representative of the USA concerning Ukraine, Kurt Volker, to raise at the meeting with Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov question about the exchange of prisoners in the Donbass, said Irina Gerashchenko, first Deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the representative of Kiev in the humanitarian sub-group on Donbass.

The Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov and special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker will hold on Monday talks in Belgrade, where he will discuss settlement of the situation in the Donbass. Negotiations are traditionally held behind closed doors, as the venue is not disclosed. It is expected that in the Serbian capital negotiators will stay in all day. Earlier, Kiev called self-proclaimed DND and LNR not to delay preparations for the exchange of prisoners. Kiev insists that the OSCE coordinator in the humanitarian sub-group has taken a more active stance.

«Today, the US special envoy on Ukraine Kurt Volker meets with Putin’s adviser Surkov. Walker, at the request of the Ukrainian side, will speak about the hostages, will give Russia letters from families of hostages and demand the immediate release», — wrote Gerashchenko in Facebook.

The Ukrainian authorities in April 2014 began a military operation against the breakaway LC and the DNI, which declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN victims of the conflict began more than 10 thousand people.

The settlement of the situation in the Donbass is discussed, including during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which from September 2014 adopted three documents regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict continue shooting.
