Ukraine is ready for compromises during the negotiations on hostage release issue, but the process remains blocked. Ukraine's Representative in Trilateral Contact Group Press Secretary Darka Olifer wrote this on Facebook after the meeting in Minsk.
"Once again we raised the issue of hostage release. Ukraine is ready for compromises, but the process remains blocked", Darka wrote.
Ukraine's Parliament vice Deputy Speaker Iryna Herashchenko said that the Ukrainian side didn't receive the answers on the Volodymyr Zhemchugov release. The militants in Donbas region didn't say anything regarding the offer neither to exchange 25 Ukrainians on 50 Russian mercenaries, nor to return severely ill Ukrainian soldiers for 8 raiders caught near Shyrokyne.
