Russian President Vladimir Putin outlined his version of the release of the Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko. According to Putin, Savchenko’s return has nothing to do with the Minsk Agreements.
- The first task we had at that point was to return to Russia two Russian citizens who were in the Ukrainian jail for the time being. Thus, it has nothing to do with the Minsk Agreements since the latter concern people who were taken from the territory of Donbas and were held in Donbas and Ukraine, said Putin as cited by TASS.
He went on saying they have been discussing with the Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko the pardon to Nadiya Savchenko for a long time. The President of the Russian Federation said that he could not take such a decision without knowing the views on the subject of the close relatives of the journalists who allegedly died through Savchenko’s fault.
- Viktor Medvedchuk met with the relatives of the killed journalists. Following that they wrote me a letter asking to grant clemency to Savchenko. Strictly speaking, this was the reason, said Putin.
