The next step of liberation of the Ukrainian hostages in the Donbas can be easier than the first. This was stated by the representative office of the Ukrainian Ombudsman Michael Chaplyga in the air “channel 5” on January 12.

He noted that until 18 January, the Ukrainian side will not announce the number of people that can liberate, not to harm the process of exchange.

“There are two positions: the exchange can be made easier because there are already established mechanisms and verification, and assurance that people do not want, for example, be displaced into uncontrolled territory, and how to do it on the frontline. There are already established mechanisms of so-called “legal scavenging”. Now it is only a political solution, when and by what formula to do it. In the case of such a decision will continue to be faster than last time. However, on the other hand, Mr. Medvedchuk (the negotiator from Ukraine in the trilateral contact group on settling the situation in Donbas. – “GORDON”) in one interview before said, he expects that negotiations will be rather difficult, and it gives certain precautions,” said Chaplyga.

On 27 December in the Donbass held an exchange of detainees. According to the Prosecutor General, Ukraine has exchanged 73 233 detained on Ukrainian hostages.

The head of the security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak said that the militants “LDNR” continue to hold 103 Ukrainians.
