US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to congratulate Russia and Ukraine on having concluded a prisoner swap, APA reports. 

"Russia and Ukraine just swapped large numbers of prisoners. Very good news, perhaps a first giant step to peace. Congratulations to both countries!", Trump tweeted. 

Note that earlier on Saturday, planes with Russian and Ukrainian detainees landed in Moscow and in Kiev as part of the prisoner swap previously agreed by the two countries.
