152 hostages illegally held in ORDLO – spokesperson for Ukraine's representative in TCG

A total of 152 hostages are illegally held in separate regions of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (ORDLO).

Spokesperson for Ukraine's representative in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) Darka Olifer wrote this on Facebook.

"152 hostages are illegally held in ORDLO. For their liberation, Ukraine is ready to accept serious compromises. However, representatives of ORDLO still want to release those who are not related to the situation in Donbas. We expect that a visit of OSCE coordinator of the humanitarian subgroup Tony Frisch to ORLO will help release people and that Mr. Frisch will be able to visit all the hostages, check the conditions of their detention, help them contact their relatives, and also make sure that people have not been tortured," Olifer wrote.

As Ukrinform reported, on October 18, a meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the situation in Donbas took place in Minsk.
