 Separatists at Minsk talks demand swapping 45 Ukrainian hostages for 600 militants, - Iryna Herashchenko

Representatives of the so-called “Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics” demand to exchange 45 Ukrainians they are holding for more than 600 militants arrested for violent crimes.

Ukraine's representative in the subgroup on humanitarian affairs of the Trilateral Contact Group to resolve the situation in the Donbas Iryna Herashchenko wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"The adversary insists they are holding only 45 prisoners and demands to release more than 600 persons arrested for commission of grave crimes. Their list also includes those who have no relation to the Minsk process and to the conflict in the Donbas. In particular, they expect us to release the individuals charged with plotting terrorist attacks in Odesa and Kharkiv. We are studying the procedural status of such persons.
