"The mutual release of held persons has ended. Seventy-six of our [people] are safe in Ukraine-controlled territory. Details will be given later," the President's Office said on Sunday, December 29.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the prisoner swap of held persons between Ukraine government and representatives of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics" began at the Mayorsk checkpoint at 11:00 Kyiv time on Sunday, according to the Ukrainian President's Office.

Earlier, participants in the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas settlement agreed on the mutual release of held persons before the end of the year.
