The negotiations on the prisoners' exchange should be done not with Donetsk and Luhansk militants, but with Russia, as the Donbas conflict initiator. President's Humanitarian Envoy at the Minsk peace talks Iryna Herashchenko said this during a briefing in Minsk broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

"Ukraine's side is firmly standing on the position of trilateral peace talks in Minsk, and that means Ukraine, OSCE and Russia. It is important to talk with those who can fix this problem that is with its initiator. Russia is the initiator. So the key to solving the prisoner's swap issue is not in Luhansk or Donetsk, it is in Moscow and Kremlin", Herashchenko commented on Nadiya Savchenko's statement to start negotiations with Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republic on the exchange of the prisoners.
