MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. Authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic have said they doubt that Kiev will hand over the lists for the all for all prisoner exchange at the Contact Group’s meeting in Minsk, Belarus, on Tuesday.
"We have almost no hope that Kiev will hand over the lists for carrying out the all for all exchange," the DPR’s envoy to the Contact Group, Denis Pushilin, told the Donetsk news agency.
"The Ukrainian side promises many things, but fails to implement this," he added.
The sides discussed the need to release more prisoners under the all for all formula during the video conference on November 24. They set the goal of completing the process by late 2015, said Daria Olifer, a spokesperson for Kiev’s envoy to negotiations Leonid Kuchma.
First, the exchange of the most vulnerable persons, namely women and those who need medical assistance, should take place, she said.
DPR's human rights commissioner Daria Morozova said earlier this month Donbas had already handed over its lists and was ready for the swap at any moment. "At the meeting of the humanitarian subgroup in Minsk on December 8, we expect to get the list of prisoners from Kiev to carry out the exchange," Morozova said.
