KIEV, December 18. /TASS/. Captive swap between Ukraine and representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics may be made only after a meeting of the Contact Group on settlement of the current situation in Ukraine, chief of the main investigation department of Ukrainian Security Service Vasily Vovk said live on TV channel 112 Ukraine on Thursday.

“The exchange will be made only after Minsk talks, I refer to the Contact Group. We hope that it [a meeting] will be held on Sunday and it will be possible to say about a release by both sides next week,” he said.

In case of exchange Ukraine will free those “who are procedurally under custody,” Vovk noted. “We take a specific decision in line with effective legislation,” he noted.

“At the present day we have 225 of them [those detained in Ukraine], we have handed exactly this number to our opponents in Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics,” Vovk said.
