 Russia may exchange Savchenko if she pleads guilty of murder, - Nadiia's mother

The Russian Federation is ready to exchange Ukrainian soldier and people's deputy Nadiia Savchenko if Ukraine acknowledges the validity of the verdict delivered against her by Russia's court.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, this was announced by Nadiia's mother Maria Savchenko.

"They (the Ukrainian side) want to swap her, but Russia puts two conditions: recognizing the validity of the verdict by Russia's court and exchanging her for others (Russian prisoners in Ukraine)," she noted.

"Acknowledging being a killer and having killed? Why live with that stigma if she did not kill? And they fabricated 39 volumes of all types of lies," the mother added.

However, Maria Savchenko noted that the leadership of Ukraine is making every effort to return Nadiia home.

"The president is trying to help, especially now he persuades Nadiia to postpone the hunger strike at least for a day. When I saw him, he said he was thinking 24 hours about Nadiia and struggling to get her back," Nadiia's mother said.
