MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. Representatives of Ukraine and the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) exchanged updated lists of prisoners and missing persons at the talks of the Contact Group’s sub-group on humanitarian issues in Minsk on October 27, a source close to negotiations told Donetsk News Agency on Friday.
"DPR and Ukraine exchanged updated lists of prisoners. Ukraine provided a list made from appeals of relatives of missing persons. The list includes 1,500 people. Another list included 778 people - those who went missing in the so-called conflict zone," the source said.
According to the source, DPR handed Ukraine the list of 1,351 prisoners "with proof they are held in Ukraine’s territory". "The Ukrainian side agreed with the Donetsk republic’s delegate arguments to accept the list to confirm that they really have so many prisoners," he noted.
On Thursday, the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) and Ukraine exchanged prisoners in the "11 for 9" format.
The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
The Minsk accords envisage ceasefire, weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local election in Donbass, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.
The Ukrainian forces and the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
