11:25 20 September Kyiv, Ukraine

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ukraine and Russia agreed to exchange 200 prisoners.

 
PBS writes about it.
 
“In Uzbekistan, I met President Putin and we had very detailed discussions with him. And it seemed to me that he was ready to end the war as soon as possible. That was my impression, because the way things are going now is quite problematic. 200 hostages will be exchanged by agreement of the parties," Erdogan said in an interview with PBS.
 
The Turkish President stressed that "no invasion can be justified" and stressed that following the war, Ukraine will fully restore its territorial integrity, including Crimea.
 
"If peace is established in Ukraine, of course, the return of the occupied lands will become very important. This is what is expected. This is what is needed. Putin has taken certain steps. We have taken certain steps. The occupied lands will be returned to Ukraine," Erdogan said.
