“I think that the exchange between Ukraine and DNR (Donetsk People’s Republic, - ed.), LNR (Luhansk People’s Republic, - ed.), a new large-scale exchange is quite possible. If it comes to the exchange between Russia and Ukraine, there are lots of issues. Yet, the key problems involve the uncertain status of the captives and the fact that such exchange will significantly deviate the political form and political positions of the sides within the situation in the eastern Ukraine. None wants to be recognized as a participant of the conflict, so for now it is unlikely to happen. It is necessary to insist on the exchange with LNR and DNR at least,” he said.
