Minsk Talks parties to try and agree on prisoners exchange

19:00, 19 December 2019

Minsk trilateral contact group will once again try to agree on the exchange of prisoners. Leonid Kuchma, Ukraine's third president and Kyiv's representative in the negotiation group said so on December 19.

According to him, previous session of the group proved fruitless. The sides could not come to terms on the ceasefire or the exchange lists.

However, Kuchma said that Kyiv would do all within its grasp to release at least part of the said people before New Year, which is something that President Volodymyr Zelensky personally insists on.
