The sides in the Donbass conflict have reached serious progress at the session of the Contact Group on Wednesday but they managed to agree on prisoner exchange, Russia's envoy to the Contact Group Boris Gryzlov said.
"The Contact Group and working subgroups held their sessions in the videoconference format. Unfortunately, there has been no serious progress yet in the dialogue between Kiev and Donbass," Gryzlov said.
"However, representatives of Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk have principally coordinated the lists of detained persons for exchange," TASS quoted him as saying.
Earlier on Wednesday, the ombudsperson of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Daria Morozova said that Donetsk and Kiev agreed to exchange prisoners on the "10 for 8" basis by Easter.
