Negotiations on the release of Ukrainians detained in the occupied Crimea and the Russian Federation are continuing.
This was announced by the head of the presidential office Andrei Yermak on Facebook, commenting on the progress of the mutual release of the detainees.
“I would like to emphasize: the mutual release of the prisoners takes place within the framework of the“ everything for all ”format. We take all citizens of Ukraine. Without exception. This is what strong countries that value their citizens do. Negotiations are underway for the release of Ukrainians detained in occupied Crimea and Russia, “Yermak wrote.
He noted that mutual release is still very hard work. There are many controversial issues that require careful testing.
Ermak recalled that President Vladimir Zelensky has repeatedly stressed that the authorities will fight for the life of every Ukrainian citizen.
The “all for all” exchange program works efficiently and 24 hours a day. The conciliation commissions operate continuously, all the declarations of relatives are verified. All adjustments are instantly made. All of this is in the interest of the Ukrainians who should be released from captivity from hell, ”said Yermak.
