Mutual release of detained persons that has taken place twice over the last 6 months should be continued for the sake of a certain purpose - the release under the formula "all for all", as stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“We cannot stop as long as more than two hundred Ukrainians are still kept in inhumane conditions in the temporarily uncontrolled territories of Donbas. And more than one hundred Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars are kept in Crimea and the Russian Federation,” the Head of State noted in his speech at the Munich Security Conference.
The President also reminded of the agreement reached within the Paris Summit of December 2019 to ensure the effective work of international organizations, in particular the International Committee of the Red Cross.
“Today, ICRC representatives are involved in the search for missing persons. Unfortunately, there are too many of them over the past six years as well. The issue of their access to detained persons remains open, but there is every reason to expect a positive solution to this issue,” the President emphasized.
