Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) refused to exchange 25 Ukrainians for 50 Russian militants and are ready to perform all for all swap. Ukraine’s spokeswoman in Trilateral Contact Group Iryna Gerashchenko wrote this on Facebook.
The militants informed OSCE about this via the letter.
They want to get 600 people whose location is unknown to the Ukrainian side.
"DPR writes that in response to the proposal of the Ukrainian side to release 25 hostages for 50 people, for offer to give them 8 mine clearance specialists, but they refuse. They want all for all exchange instead. They provide us a list of 600 people, half of whom simply do not exist. We do not know who it is and where these people are", Gerashchenko said.
She writes that DPR denies all other appeals and proposals of Kyiv.
Note that, according to the Minsk agreements, the exchange will take place precisely on the principle of "all for all" not later than the fifth day after the removal of all heavy weapons 50 km away.
