Donetsk, Jan 5 – DAN. The Contact Group on peaceful settlement in Donbass amended the “all-for-all” prisoner exchange formula, DPR envoy to Minsk talks Denis Pushilin told Donetsk News Agency.
“At the last meeting (on 21 December in Minsk – eds DAN), a new clarification was proposed: “all confirmed for all confirmed.” The negotiators also set the number of POWs for exchange, but figures are not the only problem,” Pushilin said.
To comply with the Minsk agreements’ article on prisoner exchange, Ukraine must pass an amnesty law prohibiting the prosecution and punishment of persons involved in Donbass conflict.
The Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk agreements is a key document stipulating "all-for-all” prisoner exchange and amnesty in Ukraine for all conflicts participants. *jk
