The process of POW (prisoner of war) exchange between Donetsk People’s Republic militia and Kiev, which was supposed to take place on Wednesday evening, is temporarily halted due to a shelling just several kilometers away from the prisoner exchange site, according to DPR Commandant’s Regiment Commander Viktor Anosov.

There is combat right now. We agreed to wait until 21:00 (local time – ed.). The high command had agreed on a ceasefire. If the shelling will stop, we will take the prisoners in an hour. If it won’t – the exchange process will be moved to tomorrow morning.
