Ukrainian political prisoner Nadezhda Savchenko may be exchanged for Russian nationals serving prison sentences in the USA, reports Interfax citing its own sources.
“Consultations are currently ongoing, including via official channels, on possible release of Nadezhda Savchenko through exchanging her for Russian nationals. Russia has come up with a list of individuals it is prepared to exchange for Nadezhda Savchenko", reads a report.
Among others, the list includes the names of Victor But and Konstantin Yaroshenko, a businessman and a pilot sentenced to lengthy prison terms in the US.
Interestingly, two Russian special services men detained in Ukraine’s Lugansk district, who were likely to be exchanged for Savchenko, are not on the list.
According to Mark Feigin, Nadezhda Savchenko’s lawyer, it would be impossible to exchange the two for Nadezhda Savchenko because by doing that Russia would have to admit to being a party to the conflict.
