Good news about the fate of Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia (Nadiia Savchenko, Yurii Soloshenko, and Hennadii Afanasiev) may appear by the end of May.

Verkhovna Rada First Deputy Speaker Iryna Herashchenko said on 112 TV Channel, Censor.NET reports.

"Our humanitarian subgroup (at Minsk talks - ed.) is doing a very important job to free the prisoners. We look forward to positive news on the fate of Nadiia Savchenko by the end of the month, as well as on the fate of other political prisoners held in the Russian Federation - Yurii Soloshenko and Hennadii Afanasiev. I would like to note that the president keeps the issue of their release on personal control," she said.
