The exchange of prisoners between Ukraine and Russia could take place before the end of the year. Speaker of Ukrainian delegation in the Trilateral Contact Group Oleksiy Arestovych said so as quoted by NV.
"We offer to hold the exchange by December 24, before Christmas, as a gesture of living up to our deals", Arestovych said.
Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed that Ukraine passed the OSCE a list of imprisoned individuals who could be exchanged during the "all for all" swap.
Last round of Ukraine-Russian prisoner swap took place in April; 20 Ukrainian citizens were exchanged on 14 pro-Kremlin militants.
On November 17, Russian mercenaries landed one attack on Ukrainian positions in Donbas combat area. The press office of the HQ of Joint Forces Operation reported that on Tuesday.
The enemy opened fire in Novotroitske, using rocket-propelled grenade launchers. The armed provocation did not pose any threat to the lives of Ukrainian defenders, so they did not return fire.
None of the Ukrainian citizens were killed or wounded in action.
