Putin and Zelenskiy agree to work on new prisoner swap

MOSCOW, Dec 31 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskiy have agreed to begin work immediately on a new prisoner swap, Ukraine’s presidential office said.

Putin and Zelenskiy agreed in a phone call on Tuesday to draw up a list of Ukrainians, including those held in Russian-annexed Crimea, and Russians held in Ukraine, for an exchange, it said.

On Sunday, Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine completed a large-scale prisoner swap. (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova and Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
