MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s defence ministry said on Saturday that Ukraine handed over 50 prisoners of war after talks.
Earlier on Saturday, Denis Pushilin, the Moscow-backed head of the Donetsk region – one of four regions of Ukraine that Russia unilaterally proclaimed as its territory last month – also said a prisoner swap with Ukraine was taking place.
He said 50 people from each side were being exchanged.
