Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov said that there were no Crimeans again on the lists of prisoners, whom Ukraine and the occupied Donbas planned to exchange before Easter. Reznikov reported that in a comment to TSN.

“The Ukrainian authorities are not backing down from attempts to implement the 'all-for-all' format for exchanging prisoners. But this time, Ukrainians, who are kept by militants in Donbas, should return home,” Reznikov said.

However, exchange lists have not yet been formed. The OSCE is expecting from Russia confirmation of the date of exchange, the quantity and list of names.

According to the minister, on Wednesday at a meeting of the contact group lists were discussed, the names of people for exchange were called. Final confirmation will be possible after the confirmation from the ORDLO.

All Ukrainians released as a result of the exchange will have to spend another two weeks in observation. The places where they will be located are ready.

Several Ukrainians imprisoned in Russia and the annexed Crimea are currently in critical condition. Ukraine's Parliamentary Envoy for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova posted this on her Facebook page.

According to her, Volodymyr Dudka keeps suffering from the rash and increased blood pressure. Medics did not examine him; neither did they provide him with any treatment.

Denisova also added that Volodymyr Yakymenko, the activist of Avtomaidan movement, is now in the isolation cell, suffering from dry cough and temperature +39 C. Rustem Seitmemetov, the defendant in Hizb ut-Tahrir case, is now spending his time in a cell with insufficient conditions; he sleeps on a metallic bed without any sheets. That resulted in pain in his back, as well as heart and breathing problems. Riza and Enver Ometovs, and Rustem Ismailov - another three Crimean Tatars involved in Hizb ut-Tahrir case - faced similar detention conditions.
