Viktor Medvedchuk, Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party and leaders of so-called Republics in Donbas agreed to move the captives. The talks took place in Minsk.

The liberated Ukrainians themselves have so far refused to give any detailed comments to journalists. But they said that their state of health is satisfactory and they expect to meet their relatives who are waiting at the Kyiv airport.

"Emotions, of course, are overwhelming. And why are there no comments? Well, you see from what places we have come here, and now if we start to say something, it will be rough and uncomely. In general, we are very grateful to all those who dealt with this issue, the issue of liberating us, and is further engaged in the issue of the liberation of our brithers there, on that side," released Mikheyev said.
