The so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) suggested holding an exchange of prisoners with Ukraine via "10 for 8" formula in the shortest time. It was reported by TASS with reference to DNR's Ombudsman Darina Morozova.

According to Morozova, the proposal was made during the negotiations that took place on March 26, within the framework of the Tripartite Contact Group on the resolution of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.

She noted that the Ukrainian side had responded with a refusal.

"The Donetsk People’s Republic insists on the swiftest exchange due to the complicated epidemiological situation in the world. For this reason, on March 26, during the meeting of Tripartite Contact Group, we put forward a proposal to exchange according to the ’10 for 8’ formula. The Ukrainian side flatly rejected our offer," Morozova said.

As we reported earlier, the European Union stated about the importance of the unhindered access of the OSCE SMM to areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions that are uncontrolled by Ukraine.

“It is crucial that Russia and the armed formations that it backs allow the OSCE SMM, UN agencies, non-governmental organizations and the ICRC freedom of movement across the contact line,” the message said.
