The coordinator of the Humanitarian working subgroup in the TCG, Ambassador Toni Frisch says that the lists of the detainees of the Donbas conflict to be exchanged aren’t ready yet, and nor Ukraine, nor the militants provided information on the issue, according to Hromadske

The Ambassador said that the exchange isn’t possible as of yet due to the absence of final lists. He added that the difficulties could occur as new detainees on both sides appeared.

Toni Frisch also had visited 18 detainees on both sides of the conflict.

 Previously Ukraine confirmed its readiness to release 309 individuals in exchange for 87 Ukrainians held captives on the uncontrolled territory. However, the stumbling block of the negotiations is the militant demand to release criminals and terrorists, who don’t fall under the Minsk agreements.
