Ukraine is going to release 15 people, who were earlier detained as collaborators with so-called Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics. Yuriy Tandyt, Counselor of Head of Ukraine’s Security Service said this while commenting on the issue on air at 112 Ukraine TV channel.
‘I’d say the process is about to complete. We are acting within the legal frameworks; we’re not some fancy pirate republic, and there’s certain procedure that we adhere to. As a free will gesture, we are going to release six women and nine sick people. We hope Moscow will decide the similar decision on the eve of winter holidays. We hope this ‘Orthodox’ country will act like Ukraine,’ Tandyt said.
The official stressed that the Ukrainian government pays every effort to release all its POWs from captivity of pro-Kremlin militants.
