"Recently, information was received from border guards that a prisoners' exchange took place near Maiorsk. Today, we decided to publish information on this event. In order not to break the fragile progress in the exchange process, we had decided to conceal information on the swaps.
"The image shows Mykhailo Ivanovych Kuchevskyi, soldier of an engineer unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. His exchange was supported by involvement of President Petro Poroshenko, the Minsk group, the Joint center for release of prisoners, which includes employees of SBU, the Defense Ministry, the Interior Ministry, officers, and Volodymyr Ruban," he said.
