The self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) continues working with Ukraine on the issue of POW exchange, Denis Pushilin, an official representative of the DNR in the Minsk talks, told reporters on Saturday.

"At this moment we are exchanging lists of POWs. We expect both sides to release POWs in the nearest future," he said.

Pushilin also said the DNR is trying to adhere to a personalized approach to every POW on the list and follow the approved formula "all for all."

The last big POW exchange between the conflict parties in Donbas took place on December 26, 2014. Over 150 POWs were then handed over to Ukraine and 222 POWs were handed over to the militia.
