Russia is interested in the new round of exchanging prisoners with Ukraine - in the "all for all format". Dmytro Peskov, the press secretary of the Russian leader Vladimir Putin said so on Friday.

According to him, the Kremlin praised Ukraine's agreement to the Steinmeier formula. This document offers political solution to the conflict; it foresees that the local elections will take place in the occupied Donbas, and then, immediately, the region would get the special status of governance.

If the OSCE confirms that the voting was fair, transparent and in line with the Ukrainian legislative framework.
