President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko’s plane will land at the airport of Rostov-on-Don soon where convicted Nadezhda Savchenko is waiting for it. It is reported by Russian Interfax with the reference to information sources.
"Soon the presidential plane with Russians Yevgeniy Yerofeyev and Alexander Alexandrov on board will come from Kiev to Rostov-on-Don, where Ukrainian Nadezhda Savchenko has already been brought," – said the spokesman.
According to him, exchange will take place at the same airport.
As another source told, transfer of Savchenko to the Ukrainian side will be carried out on the basis of the agreement between the two states for the extradition of persons for further serving their sentence.
"In Rostov-on-Don there are representatives of the Russian law enforcement agencies that accompany Savchenko. By mutual agreement, the Ukrainian authorities will transfer two Russians detained in Ukraine," - said the agency.
However, the defense of the convicted ATO participant Nadezhda Savchenko said that they knew nothing about the upcoming exchange.
"I do not know anything about this. Neither does my colleague Mark Feigin. I think you had better refer to the official representative of the state," - said Savchenko’s lawyer Nikolay Polozov on Wednesday.
The Kremlin said they did not have that information. "I do not have this information," - said presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov to Interfax.
