LUGANSK, January 30 (Lugansk Media Centre) – The Contact Group's humanitarian working group has reached "some progress" concerning the prisoner swap, said LPR representative in the Contact Group humanitarian subgroup Olga Kobtseva.
"The is some progress in the context of liberating unlawfully detained persons. At least Ukraine has provided information on people we requested. Meaning that there are lists of people detained in Ukraine we provided and they gave us certain information concerning these people.
"Still, information is lacking or being checked concerning approximately one third of the persons we requested. Nevertheless, this is a step forward."
Kobtseva added that the misunderstanding on some issues remains. In particular, such issue is Kiev's position on foreign citizens: Russian, Moldovan and Brazilian citizens have been detained in Ukraine, but Kiev refuses to put their names on exchange lists.
"The Minsk Agreements stipulate the "all for all" exchange principle without any discrimination based on nationality."
