“The decision by a militia commander to hand the journalist over to the Ukrainian side came two days ago,“ the head of the republic’s committee for refugees and POWs, Darya Morozova, said without specifying whether it had been a swap.
A source familiar with the situation told TASS that the journalist, Yegor Vorobyov, had been simply set free.
Vorobyov himself told 112 Ukraine TV channel about his release, saying militias had treated him well.
Ukrainian troops with three Ukrainian journalists among them were encircled late in August in the Donetsk region.
Prisoner swap is one of the key points in agreements reached at a Minsk, Belarus, meeting of the international Contact Group on settling the Ukraine conflict.
Five exchanges have taken place so far, swapping prisoners at the rate of 37 for 37, 70 for 70, 38 for 38, 28 for 28 and 30 Ukrainian law enforcers for 60 militia personnel.
