DONETSK, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Another transfer of prisoners with Ukraine will take place on Monday, September 15, Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Aleksandr Zakharchenko told reporters on Friday.

“We are going to exchange up to 70 prisoners,” Zakharchenko said. “But it depends on the Ukrainian authorities.”

Zakharchenko said that on Friday DPR government held an emergency meeting that ruled to exchange prisoners with the Ukrainian side only during daylight hours. The DPR prime minister pointed out that this decision was taken in the context of an intention of the “Ukrainian side to deliberately hide (at nights) the poor condition of militia fighters who have been held captive by (Ukrainian) military.”

On September 3 Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested a peace plan consisting of seven points after a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

It stipulates the ending of active offensive operations on both sides in the Donetsk and Luhansk areas, withdrawal of Ukrainian armed units to a distance that would make the shelling of populated localities impossible, a full and objective international monitoring of the ceasefire, ruling out of the use of military aircraft against civilians and populated areas, exchanges of the individuals detained by force on an “all for all” basis, opening of corridors for refugees and for deliveries of humanitarian aid, and the setting up of conditions for repair works in the population centers affected by combat actions.

On September 5 the trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine (Russia, Ukraine and the OSCE) and representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics (DPR and LPR) reached an agreement in Minsk on ceasefire in Ukraine’s embattled southeast, troops withdrawal, exchange of prisoners and provision of humanitarian aid.
