“These are fighters of the Aidar battalion. They were taken to hospital in grave condition. As of today their condition has normalized. A decision has been taken to hand them over to Kiev. It is a goodwill gesture,” deputy commander of the Luhansk people’s militia Vitaly Kiselyov said.
The last time self-defense forces of the Luhansk republic and the Kiev authorities exchanged prisoners was on Friday November 7.Seven pro-government soldiers were exchanged for five fighters of the self-defense units. The action took place near a township named Schastye (Happiness).
