"We have already handed over 306 bodies to the Ukrainian side who died in the Debaltseve area. We are currently holding talks to return the bodies of our dead fighters," Basurin said.
Basurin added that shelling against DPR militia is continuing in the area of the Donetsk Airport despite the official ceasefire between Kiev forces and independence supporters.
"Yes, we can say that shelling of militia positions is continuing in the region of the Donetsk Airport," he said.
The ceasefire in east Ukraine came into force on February 15, three days after German, French, Russian and Ukrainian leaders hammered out a set of measures to end the conflict in the region.
Apart from a ceasefire, the agreement included withdrawal of heavy weapons from the contact line, an "all-for-all" prisoner exchange and the establishment of a buffer zone.
Kiev launched military operations against the independence supporters of Ukraine's east regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in April 2014. The confrontation has claimed more than 6,000 civilian lives, according to the latest UN estimates.
