Donetsk, Mar 27 – DAN. Kiev has refused to harmonize the exchange lists and possible swap date of March 29, said DPR Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova.

“We were ready for it and willing to carry out the swap on Sunday, March 29, nevertheless, the Ukrainian side refused to accept its 19 people without any obvious reason. They refused the lists and the date,” Nikonorova said. *ot
