The advisors of leaders of the Normandy Four member countries (Ukraine, Germany, France, Russia) agreed that Ukraine and Russia will exchange captives within a month. Vadym Prystaiko, the Deputy Head of Presidential Administration said this as quoted by RBC-Ukraine.
The sides discussed opportunities of exchanging 10 for 10 or 15 for 15 people. According to Prystaiko, the key part is about exchanging all for all.
"President Zelensky mentioned 'ten for ten' and 'fifteen for fifteen' options, but we don't basically focus on the actual number of people. Our task is to exchange and get our guys back, deblocking the 'all for all' exchange process, which we're talking about, as it has been blocked", the official said.
July 15, Ukrainian and Russian ombudswomen met in Kyiv; Lyudmyla Denisova expressed hope that on July 16, the sides would be able to exchange the lists of those held in custody in Ukraine and Russia.
