The DPR representatives haven`t received any clear respond on the reasons of the exchange of captives delay through “618 for 47” format at the Minsk negotiations. This was claimed by Denis Pushilin, the chairman of the DPR People’s Council and the plenipotentiary representative of DPR Tripartite contact group in the course of press-conference held in Donetsk on October 6.
“We had hoped that Ukraine would give the affirmative respond on the exchange of captives through “618 for 47” format, because they did take the initiative. However, the presence of so-called experts might have complicated the subgroup negotiations and there was no intelligible answer from Ukraine. Unfortunately, instead of promoting the exchange to be performed as soon as possible, Ukraine continues to put obstacles. Instead of arranging to let their people come back home to their families, their negotiators focused on the idea to pass worm clothes to them. Daria Morozova, our representative in the subgroup, makes everything possible to perform the exchange”, — he said.
