According to him, there is no "win-win" solution to such issues. It is always an attempt to get the most out of the available possibilities, he said.

"The main thing is that we've managed to achieve the result," Bakanov added.

The SBU welcomed the freed Ukrainians in Ukrainian territory, assuring that in future they would make every effort so that all detained citizens of Ukraine could return home.

As was reported earlier, 76 Ukrainians, including 12 Ukrainian soldiers, were freed in the December 29 prisoner swap.
