Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets reports that Ukraine offered to exchange Catholic and Muslim prisoners, but russia refused. Muslims around the world will celebrate the end of the fast – Oraza Bayram. In addition, on March 31, Catholics celebrated Easter. On this occasion, Ukraine initiated an exchange of prisoners of war who profess Islam and Catholicism. The list offered by Ukraine to the russian side for exchange includes 1 Catholic and 146 Muslims. However, russia ignored the proposed lists. The Pope’s message did not motivate the russians to carry out the exchange, either on the basis of the “all-for-all” formula or under other conditions. Despite this unreasonable behaviour of the russian side, Ukraine expresses its readiness to carry out an exchange under the “all for all” formula on the occasion of the Orthodox Easter.
