42 prisoners were successfully moved from the temporarily occupied Luhansk to the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government forces. Iryna Gerashchenko, Ukraine's first deputy speaker of the Parliament posted that on Facebook.
112 International closely follows the situation and will inform the audience as the follow-up appears.
Previously, Yevhen Marchuk, the representative of Ukraine at Minsk Talks said that Ukraine's representatives in the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk will offer the formulae of the prisoners’ exchange, namely '23 for 23' and '66 for 19', during the next session of the Group.
“We have officially proposed this at the session on December 4. Russia does not agree on this. We will submit this offer again,” Marchuk said.
According to the Marchuk, the Ukrainian side will announce this offer at the next and the last round of talks in Minsk this year.
Earlier, the Russian media reported that the representatives of self-proclaimed 'DNR' (Donetsk People's Republic) offered to exchange prisoners of war with Ukraine on December 27.
