This was announced by the representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian sub-group TKG Irina Gerashchenko in Facebook.
“Today, finally, it began verification of statements of persons who have committed crimes against Ukraine, but which under the legislation can not be pardoned for the release of our hostages, while these individuals do not want to return to occupied territory,” she wrote.
Gerashchenko noted that we are talking about several hundred citizens, so this monitoring is going to take time.
“Really believe and want to do everything to ensure that this verification has brought us finally to the day of liberation of the hostages. Four months, we in the humanitarian group in Minsk agreed on the involvement of international organizations in the verification process. Today, this process started with the participation of the Ombudsman’s office, the SBU and the coordination of the OSCE”, – wrote Gerashchenko.
