DONETSK. March 10 (Interfax) – The Donbas militia has presented three lists of approximately 2,000 captives planned to be exchanged with Ukraine.

“The first list is comprised of the names of about 220 soldiers, the second of another 800, and the third list contains the names of civilians, 900 people, ombudsman of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Darya Morozova told reporters on Tuesday.

In her words, ten militia men included in one of the lists have already been sentenced.

Morozova alleged that the Ukrainian army had been forcing militia men to refuse from being exchanged.

“Many of our guys are forced to refuse from being exchanged in writing,” she said.
