Self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic believes that the exchange of detained persons with Ukraine in 'all for all' format is impossible until the military actions are discontinued. This was stated by the Ombudsman of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic Darina Morozova, Interfax reports.

According to Morozova, new detentions are expected to continue in Ukraine until the law on amnesty of participants of illegal armed formations is applied.

"This means that a claim could be made against every person. Therefore, exchange in 'all for all' format is impossible until the conflict is completely resolved," she said.

At the same time, Morozova believes that the process of exchange of detained persons cannot be stopped.

"We have confirmed information that there are some people who are detained in the territory of Ukraine. The number is not that large, but they are there. Therefore, the exchanges cannot stop," Morozova added.

As we reported earlier, Russian human rights envoy Tatyana Moskalkova has no information about any new agreements about the exchange of inmates between Russia and Ukraine. TASS quoted her as saying.

"As it usually goes, the beginning of the work to exchange citizens between the two states is a deal between two presidents. I know nothing about any such agreement. I only heard statements from President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky; there have been no signals from the other side so far", she said.
