About it in Facebook, the UNIAN tells.

"Minsk. Second day. The Ukrainian side looks for all possible ways for unblocking of process of release of hostages of the Russian Federation and from occupied territories. I have made the next specific proposal to Russians: the Ukrainian side is ready as an exception to pardon two citizens of the Russian Federation having problems with health, to transfer them to the Russian consul in the presence of OSCE Representatives and ICRC with simultaneous transfer to Ukraine Ukrainian of the military personnel who illegally holds more than 3 years on Donbass", - Gerashenko has said.

It has emphasized that Ukraine defends a position of "simultaneous transfer of citizens of the Russian Federation in exchange for Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin". "The Ukrainian side expresses deep concern about that fact that for a long time we haven't received from the Russian Federation any (neither oral, nor written) the answer to our offer to transfer them the Russians who have committed crimes in exchange for Ukrainians in the Russian prisons. We wait for the official answer of the Russian Federation to this offer", - Gerashenko has added. "The Ukrainian side considers an identical priority importance of release of political prisoners of the Kremlin to the Russian Federation and hostages in the territories of Donbass occupied by the Kremlin. Both the decision on release and political prisoners and hostages accepts only the Kremlin, today the Russian Federation and their puppets block release of hostages and all healthy initiatives and attempts to unblock this question", - Gerashenko has said. "For this reason the ombudsman Moskalkova (the representative of the Russian Federation for human rights - the UNIAN) has refused to arrive to Minsk to discuss transfer of prisoners", - she considers.
