Ukraine has a reserve for conducting the exchange of its citizens illegally held in the Russian Federation and in territories, which are temporarily beyond Ukraine’s control. Yuriy Lutsenko, who has been just dismissed from the office of the Prosecutor General, stated this during this on the sidelines of the parliament, as broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
“I had a conversation with President Zelensky just a few days ago, regarding the future exchange. So, I really hope that the exchange will take place in a “35 to 35” format, but there is also a prospect. Two thousand people held accountable for terrorism, 1300 of them have already been convicted [in Ukraine], " Lutsenko stated.
When asked how many of these people are held accountable for terrorism are Russian citizens, Lutsenko answered that several dozen of them have Russian passports.
As we reported earlier, August 29, Verkhovna Rada of the 9th convocation agreed to dismiss Yuriy Lutsenko from the post of Prosecutor General of Ukraine. Lutsenko said that for the past year he has been forcing himself to attend his work, as working in the current legislative field was “slavery.”
