The Ukrainian side does not show the necessary willingness in this matter, said Sands.
The Ukrainian side does not show the necessary interest in respect of the exchange of prisoners. On Monday, September 10, said the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said.
“I do not know about it. I understand that the Russians, who were convicted and are in Ukraine, I want to get back home, but we did not know about the readiness of the Ukrainian side to take some steps”, he said.
So Sands commented on the information that citizens of Russia who are in Ukrainian prisons wrote in the name of Vladimir Putin a request to exchange them for the Ukrainians, who are on the territory of Russia.
He noted that all depends on who it is. “There are a lot of nuances. Until the Ukrainian side does not show the necessary willingness and flexibility”, – said Peskov.
Ukraine, in turn, said that Russia had refused to negotiate concerning the exchange of 36 prisoners of citizens of the Russian Federation on the Ukrainian prisoners.
