Russian-backed militants in east Ukraine stall exchange of captives and ban Red Cross from examining them, press secretary of Leonid Kuchma (Ukraine’s representative at Minsk peace negotiations), Daria Olifer, informed on Facebook.

“Representatives of separate territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions stall the process of exchange of captives. They link the process to amnesty, whereas, they are absolutely unconnected”, - Olifer writes, adding that pro-Russian militants ban representatives of Red Cross from examining Ukrainian captives, held in territories uncontrolled by Ukraine’s authorities.

At today’s peace negotiations, the parties agreed to improve living conditions of orphans in occupied territories of east Ukraine.
