According to her, a meeting was held today with the participation of officials, at which this issue was discussed.

And most importantly, we talked about how to force Russia to allow the Red Cross to reach our prisoners, to force Russia to release our prisoners, who since 2014, some of them, and also women, have been in the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions

"For example, when sailors were exchanged, 19 of our sailors were received for 11 Russians."
