The self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk national Republic is ready to transfer to Kiev of all prisoners, previously specified in the agreed list, told reporters on Friday the representative of the LC in the humanitarian sub-group in Ukraine, head of the working group LC for the exchange of prisoners Olga Kobzeva.
«Those people who would like the Ukrainian side, we are ready to transfer. But, unfortunately, those people who were listed (LNR and DNR — ed.) and confirmed the readiness of their transfer to the Republic — today it is not running… At the last meeting on 12 December, which was held in the Skype conference, Ukraine on trumped-up reasons tried to break this list. That is, they have not confirmed its readiness to transfer these people and no agreement was reached,» explained Kobzeva.
Earlier, the leader of the public movement «the Ukrainian choice — the right of the people» Viktor Medvedchuk said that Kiev and self-proclaimed DND and LNR agreed on lists of prisoners for exchange; in a first stage, Kyiv will give 306 people, the militia returned 74.
