Ukraine has offered Russia an exchange of Russian prisoners of war with severely wounded Azovstal defenders in Mariupol, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Irina Veresuk said tonight.
“There is no agreement yet. “Negotiations are continuing,” she added in an internet post.
According to Veresuk, the Ukrainian government is considering various options to end the siege of Azovstal. He noted, however, that “none of them are perfect.”
