The issue of releasing Ukrainian hostages deals exclusively with the President of the aggressor country of Russia Vladimir Putin. About it today to journalists in Kiev was declared by the representative of Ukraine in the tripartite contact group in Minsk, Leonid Kuchma.
“I have said several times that everything that happens in the Donbass, and all the prospects of developments in the Donbas depend on God and Putin. The Lord God – no, Putin – has wanted – has made. Conclusions – is absolutely clear,” – said Kuchma.
According to him, 14 months the exchange process is blocked in Minsk.
“If this (exchange Ukrainian hostages, – ed.) will happen this year, it is a great happiness for these people, God Forbid that to happen. But when we are 14 months each time in Minsk discuss these problems, and none of the exchange did not happen is really the question of all questions”, – said Kuchma.
