"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.

"As of the liberation of hostages who are held in the occupied Donbas, we're speaking about 112 Ukrainians, both military and civilian. So far the process of their release is blocked as the militants demand amnesty," she added.
"Savchenko filled in documents necessary for her extradition to Ukraine. Her release now depends on authorities' agility," - lawyer Polozov
