Plenipotentiary representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk people's Republic at the talks in Minsk Denis Pushilin asked in a persistent form of observance of the Minsk agreements as part of the announcement of an Amnesty to all those present confrontation in the Donbass. He also said that the DNR will not go on the exchange of prisoners by the formula " head to head ".
"Alternatives to Amnesty no. If We wish to release of our companions, we must be made the point of the fifth set of measures ", - said Pushilin.
He has supplemented his words by the fact that DNR is not appropriate exchange ratio " head to head ".
"Not for us the exchange of" head ", because in DND there is simply no number which We could cash in on thousands of people who have been in detention in Ukraine. We don't time in the form of a goodwill gesture, released the prisoners without any exchange, " said the Plenipotentiary representative of the DND.
Pushilin noticed that the DNR released even those security officers who are actually involved in the shelling of peaceful cities.
according to the DND Ombudsman Darya Morozova at the beginning of July, in Ukrainian prisons contain more than a thousand militia. She also believes that the Amnesty law, which gives the opportunity for an exchange of prisoners by the formula " all for all ", must be developed in a specialized sub-group of the trilateral Contact group.
before the Committee on prisoners of war DND stated that the exchange of prisoners by the formula "all for all" is difficult due to the fact that Kiev is filed against many of the captives criminal cases under articles " terrorism ", " separatism ", " participation in illegal armed groups ". DNR authorities are willing to exchange only under the condition that the case will be closed.
