Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Ukraine must remain one political entity, voicing hope that the crisis could be solved through peace talks.

Mr Putin also said today that the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine should conduct a quick “all for all” prisoners swap before Christmas.

He said he feels sure that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko sincerely wants a peaceful solution to the crisis but some other forces in the country do not.

Mr Putin urged the Ukrainian government to fulfil its end of a peace deal reached in September and grant amnesty to the rebels and offer broad rights to residents of the country’s east.
