KIEV, November 8. /TASS/. The Contact Group’s humanitarian subgroup will hold meetings in Minsk on November 8-9, Irina Geraschenko, Kiev’s envoy to the subgroup and Verkhovna Rada Deputy Speaker, said on Tuesday.
"Releasing prisoners will be the key topic for the humanitarian subgroup in Minsk which will work for two days — on November 8 and 9," Geraschenko wrote on her Facebook page.
At the last Contact Group meeting on October 26, the humanitarian subgroup did not hold a session as its coordinator Tony Frisch was inspecting conditions of Ukrainian prisoners in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR). Earlier he visited the Kiev-controlled territories in Donbass where he met with prisoners as well. Frisch’s visits were organized to facilitate prisoner exchange between the parties.
Prisoner exchange is one of the key points of the Package of measures on the implementation of the Minsk Agreements. According to the document, prisoners should be exchanged on the "all for all" basis.
