During the videoconference of the Contact Group for the conflict settlement in Donbass, parties managed to reach an agreement on the exchange of held persons according to the “all determined to all determined” formula by the end of this year, as well as agree on a document certifying the parties ’obligations under this process.

Thus, Ukraine has finally reaffirmed its obligations to apply to persons who will return for the exchange a procedure guaranteeing their release from criminal punishment and prosecution.
