The people’s Deputy Hope Savchenko, accused of Vice-speaker of Parliament, member of the humanitarian sub-group of the Minsk contact group Irina Gerashchenko in the prolongation of the negotiations on exchange of prisoners. According to Savchenko people like Irina Gerashchenko and methods that delay the negotiations on the exchange. This opinion Savchenko said in an interview to “BBC-Ukraine”.

Savchenko said that he spoke to Gerashchenko, but they have not found a common language.

In “DNR” said that the militants held in captivity the citizens of Ukraine may meet with their mothers in the near future.
