According to the newspaper, this information was also confirmed by an interlocutor close to the Office of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

As we reported earlier, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko believes that the exchange of prisoners will not be equivalent, as it was before. He told this to reporters in Kyiv, Interfax informed.

"The quantity, I think, will not be accurate this time. The format of the exchange will be not one-for-one, and the exchange process itself will be even more sensitive," Prystaiko noted.

According to him, the lists of people whom they plan to exchange with Moscow remain closed so as not to jeopardize the process itself.
