Statements of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky doubt the possibility of holding of the prisoners’ exchange as representative of the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) Olha Kobtseva stated.

Earlier, during the Munich Security Conference, Zelensky stated that the representatives of Ukraine almost agreed on the holding of the new exchange of prisoners, specifying that the self-proclaimed republics are ready to pass 200 people to the Ukrainian side.

“Numbers he stated at the Munich Conference do not correspond to the reality. Firstly, about 200 people are announced, then about 240 people,” Kobtseva said.
