Russia refuses to discuss prisoners exchange with Ukraine, - official

The Verkhovna Rada
The Russian side rejected Ukraine's offer to discuss the exchange of prisoners in Minsk - namely 36 Russians for a number of Ukrainian citizens illegally held by the Kremlin. Iryna Gerashchenko, vice speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament posted that on Facebook.
'Unfortunately, the Russian side and Russian ombudswoman Tatyana Moskalkova refused to meet in Minsk and discuss Ukraine's initiative to pass Russia 36 citizens in exchange for the Kremlin's political prisoners. Russia simply doesn't need its citizens back', Gerashchenko wrote.
She added she told the representatives of Russia and the OSCE that 22 Russians judged for preparing terrorist acts, sabotage, espionage and membership in the illegal armed formations asked Russian president Putin to take them back to their homeland - in exchange for Ukrainians who are now staying in Russian prisons.
