Representatives of the militants in the self-proclaimed "Luhansk People's Republic" (LPR) announced their readiness to change the list of persons for the exchange of prisoners. The representative of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic Olga Kobtseva stated, as Interfax news agency reported.
"If Ukraine does not change the approach to forming the list for exchange, we reserve the right to adjust the list of persons held in the LPR, in whose release Ukraine is interested," Kobtseva said.
According to her, as of 18:00 on December 24, the Ukrainian side sent to the representatives of the self-proclaimed republics of Donbas incorrect lists of participants to be released. A number of people were unilaterally excluded from the agreed lists, and for some, they changed their status information.
As we reported, Almost half of Ukrainians (44%) believe that the release of Ukrainian sailors and other political prisoners is the event of the year.
