Kiev and Donetsk complete first prisoner swap this year
The first prisoner exchange in 2020 between the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Ukraine has ended, the Donetsk republic’s envoy to the Contact Group’s humanitarian subgroup and DPR Human Rights Commissioner Darya Morozova said.
"The exchange is over," the Donetsk News Agency cited her as saying.
The prisoner swap took place in the area close to the Gorlovka-Mayorsk checkpoint on the contact line. DPR’s representatives will officially announce the exchange formula soon, TASS reported.
There were no incidents during the swap. Due to the danger of the spread of the novel coronavirus, law enforcement officers and prisoners wore protective masks and tried to keep the necessary social distance.
