Prisoner exchange to be discussed during contact group meeting on Ukraine in Minsk

A meeting of the tripartite contact group on the settlement of the conflict in the southeast of Ukraine will take place in the Belarusian capital.

It is planned to discuss the results of the so-called school truce in the Donbass.

The cease-fire arrangements for the start of the new academic year were agreed in Minsk at the previous OSCE-Ukraine-Russia meeting. They began to operate from midnight on 25 August.

However, the situation did not change radically in the zone of contact. People still die here and explosions do not subside, although tension on the front lines has decreased. On September 6, during the meeting of the contact group in Minsk, the issue of the exchange of prisoners will also be discussed. Their number from each of the conflicting parties is what causes disputes.

The formula of "all for all" is one of the main points of the Set of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements.
