Vladimir Zhemchugov, who lost his sight and hands on the territory of the "LPR" and was transferred by militants from hospital to a prison, can arrive in Ukraine tomorrow, said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

Vladimir Zhemchugov is being illegally held in the city of Luhansk. I can say that tomorrow we will free him, Poroshenko told at the opening ceremony of the 13th annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES) on Thursday as cited by a QHA correspondent.

The President also promised to cooperate with Europe in order to release other Ukrainian political prisoners Oleg Sentsov, Aleksandr Kolchenko, Nicholay Karpyuk and Stanislaw Klyh.

Vladimir Zhemchugov, who was blown on a tripwire in the “LPR” controlled territory, has been used by the terrorist leadership for the blackmail and as means of propaganda. They refused to swap the man, who lost his sight and arms, and declared him a saboteur.

December, 25 the LPR militants started ostentatious "criminal proceedings" against him.
