Today, the Donetsk People’s Republic transferred 23 detainees to Kiev. No incidents occurred during the procedure, as reported by Chief Administrator of the DPR Ombudsman’s Office Dmitry Popov.
“The transfer of convicts to serve their sentence in the territory of Ukraine took place without incident,” – he said.
Earlier today, the Ombudsman’s Office told the DPR was ready to hand over 23 detainees to the Ukrainian side.
To be recalled, this was not the first action of this kind. In July 2016 DPR authorities handed over to Kiev another 23 convicts who expressed the desire to serve their sentence in Ukraine.
