“The Minsk format should be divided: separate humanitarian issues, and especially political. Don’t you perform some action, and then we exchange, and the exchange takes place separately, all the other issues separately. It should be so. Otherwise, a trade in hostages. This is a war crime,” said Birch.

The MP also added that there is an agreement on the exchange of all for all, but it stuck.

According to Birch, the exchange should be carried out by each of the parties.
