Donbas conflict: Ukraine offers militants to release 10 citizens
They have been held hostages for more than a year now
During the next round of prisoners’ exchange, Ukrainian side offered Russia-backed militants to release ten Ukrainian citizens. They have been held captive for more than a year now, wrote Iryna Gherashchenko, Ukraine’s Presidential Envoy on Peaceful Settlement of Donbas Conflict.
“We are eager to maintain progress in this area; we offered members of illegal armed units to release at least 10 Ukrainians who have been held in captivity. However, so far, militants blackmail the Ukrainian side, demanding amnesty for their detained comrades in exchange for releasing Ukrainian hostages”, she posted at Facebook.
According to Gherashchenko, another 114 Ukrainian citizens are currently held captive in Donbas.
