Persons mentioned in the list, announced to the exchange of representatives of the ORDO and the astronomical clock and should change in the framework of the Minsk agreements, according to the Russian Federation.

The proposed Ukraine to the exchange of 23 Russians were detained in military operations in the East of Ukraine and, therefore, they can only be exchanged in the framework of the Minsk agreements on Ukrainian citizens held no uncontrolled territories of Donbass. In an interview with Znaj.Ua said the special representative for humanitarian issues in the Tripartite contact group on peaceful settlement of the situation in the Donbas, Viktor Medvedchuk.

According to him, the sharing options of these Russians on the Ukrainians, who are held in Russia, Moscow is not even considered.

“I want to stress this. These persons declared by the representatives of the ORDO and the astronomical clock in the lists on the exchange. The position of Russia is such that these individuals (once again, they were arrested in connection with the participation in the fighting in the area ATO) needs to be exchanged in accordance with Minsk agreements. For this reason, the exchange of 23 people detained as a result of the ATO, the citizens of Ukraine residing on the territory of Russia, today in Moscow is not considered,” he said.

However, according to Medvedchuk, now negotiating for the release of several Ukrainians in Russia.

“If you talk about personalities, today there are negotiations for the release in exchange of a few people in the Russian Federation. It makes no sense to talk about specific names, not yet reached an agreement,” he stressed.

In addition, Medvedchuk said that currently negotiations are underway with representatives ORDO about the exchange of prisoners by the formula “all for all”.

“The principle “all for all” in this case should look like “all installed all installed”… this is discussed in Minsk on humanitarian subgroup. Today, ORDO and ORLO’s wanted on the territory of Ukraine 396, of which the whereabouts of 174 people. In turn, Ukraine is looking at territories beyond the control of 138 people, of which us installed and documented by 43 people. Thus, the second stage, which I have repeatedly said, can be exchange “174 43″. As for 174, in respect of individuals in the Ukrainian side there are a number of issues to be resolved, and only then, can formulate the official position concerning the second stage of the exchange”, – said Medvedchuk.

We will remind, earlier the first Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko has repeatedly stated that Ukraine is ready to transfer 23 the Russians in exchange for the release of Director Oleg Sentsov and other detained in the Russian Ukrainians.
