Kiev and rebels swap hundreds of captives in peace push

Ukrainian soldiers stand guard during a prisoner exchange between Ukraine and pro-Russian rebels on December 26, 2014 in the eastern Ukrainian city of Yasinovataya, near DonetskUkraine and pro-Russian rebels were on Saturday set to complete a swap of hundreds of prisoners as part of a new push for peace that came despite Kiev’s decision to cut off key transport links to breakaway Crimea. The exchange began Friday on a dark and isolated stretch of a road north of the devastated eastern rebel stronghold of Donetsk, and unfolded as negotiators from both sides held video talks on Skype at reviving stalled negotiations. A final five were due to be handed to Ukraine on Saturday from the neighbouring separatist province of Lugansk, according to a rebel spokeswoman.
