A temporary ceasefire had been reached between the warring sides for the dead fighters’ exchange proposed by the Ukrainian side, the press office said.
At first, about 100 coffins for the dead were brought to the building of the pro-Kiev regional administration, eye-witnesses said.
The Ukrainian military have already taken away all their dead servicemen. Representatives of the Luhansk People’s Republic are preparing to go to the town of Schastye where the second part of the exchange is planned.
Journalists intending to cover the exchange have already been warned of a possible danger.
It has been relatively calm in Luhansk since Tuesday night. No explosions or gunfire are heard. No Ukrainian military planes are seen in the sky above the city.
The press-service of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic has said the authorities in Kiev had come out with the initiative.
In the meantime, in Kiev President Petro Poroshenko told the media that government forces were conducting resolute and successful operations to restore control of the state border.
The authorities in Kiev have promised to make public a 14-point settlement plan on Thursday or Friday.
