Ukrainian MP Nadiya Savchenko said that she does not ask President Poroshenko to release the criminals, but asks him to return Ukrainian patriots.
She wrote this on her Facebook page.
"I do not ask Poroshenko to release criminals, I ask him to take back our patriots. If he will be able to do this without releasing criminals, that's good. But if it is necessary to exchange them, than he should do it! The main issue is to make our patriots free! " Wrote Savchenko.
Earlier terrorists from DNR refused to release hostages in responce to Ukrainian goodwill gesture. DNR is willing to accept 15 people unilaterally, but will not make reciprocal steps as "enough people were released unilaterally" already
