First Deputy Parliament Speaker Iryna Heraschenko, who is Ukraine's representative in the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group on resolution of the conflict in Donbas (Ukraine, Russia, and the OSCE), has said that militants are demanding amnesty for 700 convicts in exchange for release and transfer of 50 Ukrainian war prisoners.

Heraschenko announced this on Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Now, they (militants) are again insisting on immediate amnesty as a prerequisite for release and transfer of about 700 people in exchange for 50," she wrote.

Heraschenko added that further release of Ukrainian war prisoners has been blocked despite the appeal by the leader of the Normandy Quartet (Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia) and the Trilateral Contact Group for release of Ukrainian war prisoners before the New Year and the unilateral transfer of 15 militants by Ukraine.

At the same time, according to her, representatives of the rebel-held areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have declared that their "goodwill gesture" was the transfer of Taras Kolodyi and two women whose fate, together with the fates of all the other Ukrainian war prisoners, have repeatedly been discussed in Minsk (Belarus).

At that, the humanitarian subgroup of the Trilateral Contact Group on resolution of the conflict in Donbas (Ukraine, Russia, and the OSCE) will hold a meeting via videoconference on January 18 to discuss release of Ukrainian war prisoners.

Heraschenko stressed that the Ukrainian side was insisting on immediate unblocking of the release of Ukrainian war prisoners and that it focused attention on the realistic compromises that were proposed a few months ago with the aim of unblocking the process of release of war prisoners during the group's meeting on Monday.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Savchenko has published lists of prisoners and missing persons in the Donbas.
