Special Representative of the U.S. Department of the State in Ukraine Kurt Volker expressed hope that the exchange of the prisoners between Ukraine and the Russian Federation would take place. This was reported by Hromadske.
Kurt Volker commented on the situation about the exchange of prisoners between Russia and Ukraine during the March of Dignity.
"I really hope that the exchange will happen, but I do not take part in these negotiations. I know that it is very important for the President of Ukraine to bring home everybody and the sailors most of all. I hope, I will be able to meet and communicate with Mr. Surkov," Volker said.
Earlier, the U.S. government condemned the attack on Ukrainian positions near Pavlopol, which resulted in deaths of four servicemen.
"Extremely disappointed with new ceasefire violations, leading to 4 Ukrainian soldiers killed by Russian led forces — especially at a time when the new Ukrainian President is making gestures for peace", Volker tweeted.
