Foreign and Commonwealth Office – 2019 Press Release on Ukrainian Prisoners

Below is a press release issued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 30/12/2019.

An FCO spokesperson said:

“We welcome the recent prisoner exchange in Ukraine. The return of Ukrainians detained by Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine is long overdue. This prisoner exchange is another example of President Zelenskyy’s determination to bring an end to the conflict in eastern Ukraine, and we commend his commitment to seek justice for those protestors murdered in 2014. Russia must fulfil its obligations under the Minsk agreements and immediately release all remaining Ukrainian political prisoners.”
