As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by adviser to SBU chairman Yurii Tandit on air of Channel 5.
"The decision is taken. It's the procedure that should be completed now. I think it will happen in the coming days, or hours... By this step, Ukrainian government shows it also cares about the people beyond the contact line, because they are our citizens," he said.
According to Tandit, those intended to be released have either committed crimes or are suspected of committing crimes against Ukraine's integrity.
"These are persons with health issues and women. Ukrainian government releases as many as 15 people as a token of good faith," the official said.
