Ukraine’s representatives at talks in Minsk have agreed to consider the possibility of a prisoner swap under the "618 for 47" formula, Vladislav Deinego, the chief negotiator for the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) at talks of the Contact Group for the settlement in Donbass, said on Thursday.
"After representatives from the republics stated readiness saying it was necessary to carry out a swap on an ‘618 for 47’ basis, thus getting closer to the ‘all-for-all’ formula to return home all on the confirmed by the sides lists, Ukraine’s representatives have agreed to look into this possibility," Deinego told the LuganskInformCenter news agency.
