KIEV, February 22. /TASS/. Another exchange of prisoners between the Kiev authorities and militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) may take place in early March, Markiyan Lubkovsky, and adviser to the chief of Ukraine’s Security Service, said on Sunday.

"We have information that there are more people to be released. So, we expect another exchange of prisoners may take place in early March," he said in an interview with a Ukrainian television channel.

On Saturday, 52 militias were exchanged for 139 Ukrainian troops in Donbass. One Ukrainian serviceman opted to stay in Donetsk.

The prisoner exchange operation was organized by Viktor Meevedchuk, a humanitarian envoy at the Contact Group on Ukraine.
