The intention of Ukrainian MP Nadiia Savchenko to publish the lists of prisoners of war (POWs) will harm the hostages and their families, adviser to the chief of the SBU Security Service of Ukraine Yuriy Tandyt said on one of the Ukrainian TV channels, reported Unian.

He said that he had personally talked with Savchenko and asked her not to publish the lists of Ukrainian prisoners. "I think she understood me," he said.

At the same time, Tandyt named the specific reasons why it is impossible to publish such lists. "In 2014-2015, when there was heavy fighting, unfortunately, the volunteers handed over such lists, and they were published in open sources. After that, we had to catch the crooks for a long time, who tried to use these lists for their own gain," he said.

Earlier Savchenko claimed that people in Ukraine, who could finish the war in Donbas within two months, are not in power.

Also Poroshenko told about his reaction on Savchenko's talks with Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky.
