KIEV, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Six Ukrainian soldiers captured in the recent military conflict by militia from southeastern Luhansk People’s Republic were released on Monday in the republic’s city of Krasny Luch, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko wrote on his Twitter account.
“Six soldiers were released today from captivity in the city of Krasny Luch,” Poroshenko tweeted. “Five of them are troops from the 24th brigade and one from the border guards’ brigade.”
There was no information as of yet whether the Kiev authorities swapped any prisoners in return.
The prisoner swap is one of the key points of the agreement, signed in Minsk on September 5 at the meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine. Since then, the sides have swapped hostages four times.
