Pavlo Klimkin, The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine during the conversation with journalists informed that the hostage exchange may be possible in couple weeks.

We strongly hope that exchange will take place in the coming weeks. It’s hard to talk about the exact date, and I strongly hope that this decision will be applied to the largest possible number of hostages.

Klimkin went on saying that the exact date of exchange and number of hostages were not determined yet.

Earlier, Pavlo Klimkin and Sergey Lavrov, the MFA of Russia, had discussed the exchange of hostages at the OSCE Ministerial Meeting in Vienna. Klimkin stressed that the solution for this issue will be found during couple weeks.
