MINSK, January 20 /TASS/. The Ukrainian side has turned down yet another prisoner exchange proposal of the self-proclaimed Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics in eastern Ukraine, Vladislav Deinego, LPR’s representative in the Contact Group, told LuganskInformCentre after Wednesday’s meeting of the Contact Group for the Ukraine settlement.
"The LPR and DPR made their proposals on prisoner swaps clearly in accordance with the OSCE requirements but Ukraine turned them down," Deinego said.
"A group for humanitarian issues held a heated debate on how the sides should exchange the illegally held persons. The Contact Group for the Ukraine settlement also had a serious discussion," Deinego said.
He added that the OSCE had suggested its own approach to prisoner exchanges. "It does not suit us in everything but we consider it to be acceptable in principle," Deinego said.
