Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova asserted on Wednesday, during a press briefing, that Zelensky's proposal to swap the prisoners of war is "extremely dangerous.", APA reports citing Teletrader.

"Russia considers this extremely dangerous, considering the many opposition politicians in Ukraine," said Zakharova. The comment comes after Ukrainian authorities previously arrested Viktor Medvedchuk, one of the leading opposition politicians. Moreover, the spokesperson urged the West not to succumb to "new provocations Kiev is preparing."

Additionally, Zakharova stated that the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine are continuing in an online format, emphasizing that the Ukrainian side is directing "its efforts not at reaching agreements, but at dragging out negotiations"
