DPR Ombudsman Daria Morozova said she was confident that the exchange of prisoners with Ukraine would take place by the end of this year.
“I’m 99.9 percent sure that the exchange will be performed by the New Year,” Morozova told Donetsk News Agency. “The delay has occurred only because of Ukraine. According to an official representative of Kiev, several weeks are enough to clear our guys of charges.”
To be recalled, the issue was discussed in a telephone conversation between DPR Head Alexander Zakharchenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin. In this regard, an initiative put forward by Ukrainian Choice – People’s Right movement leader Viktor Medvedchuk was considered. Zakharchenko supported Putin’s position. Later he said that the Donetsk People’s Republic is ready for the exchange.
