KIEV, December 29. /TASS/. Ukraine will continue talks with militias to complete the prisoner exchange, the National Security and Defense Council’s spokesman Andriy Lysenko said on Monday.
The talks “will continue until our last person is released from captivity and returns home,” Lysenko said.
Head of the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union Oleg Martynenko said 800-900 Ukrainian servicemen were still held captive.
According to different data, the number of people who are currently held captive exceeds 800, he said.
The Interior Ministry gives the data of about 300 people. The data of the Security Service of Ukraine differs, Martynenko said.
Ukraine’s center for POW release said on December 27 that 490 Ukrainians were currently held captive. On that day another four captives were handed over to Kiev.
On December 26, the militias and Kiev’s military exchanged 222 prisoners for 146.
