Russia has voiced a need to swap all Ukrainian for all Russian prisoners, reported the Russia’s Commissioner for Human Rights Ella Pamfilova as cited by Interfax.

In particular, this concerns Nadezhda Savchenko, who after the court could be transferred to Ukraine in exchange for detained Russian special forces operatives Yevgeny Yerofeyev and Alexander Alexandrov.

- I'd love the idea of swap “all for all” to be supported. It would be at least some step in improving relations between our countries, says Ella Pamfilova.
