KIEV, November 30. /TASS/. Ukraine is ready to exchange prisoners on the "all for all" basis at any moment, Ukraine Security Service chairman’s advisor Yury Tandit said on Monday.
"Ukraine is ready at any moment, on any day for a joint operation and to release everyone in several hours," UNN news agency quoted Tandit as saying.
According to Tandit, around 140 people are currently held as prisoners in Donbas. "Among them are 80 people from the defense ministry, National Guard, volunteer battalions and around 60 civilians," he added.
He noted that talks are "held every day". "The main thing is that enormous work is being done to search for those alive and dead, for missing persons," Tandit continued.
Ukrainian president’s commissioner for peaceful settlement in Donbass Irina Geraschenko said earlier that 148 military and civilians are held as prisoners in Donbass.
On November 29 the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) people’s militia headquarters deputy commander Igor Yaschenko said that the prisoner exchange was disrupted by the Ukrainian side. "The Ukrainian side has unilaterally refused to take part in the exchange for reasons unknown to us," Yaschenko said adding that this is not the first such case.
