Ukraine and pro-Russian militants exchanged hostages. The extremely anticipated event took place on Wednesday afternoon.

74 Ukrainians were released from captivity in the occupied territories of Donbas. In turn, the Ukrainian side released 306 individuals, detained for membership in terrorist organizations and other crimes against the state.

This was a principal agreement that the warring sides reached during the numerous talks earlier this year.
