The Chairman of Committee of the State Duma on international Affairs Alexei Pushkov commented on the air of “Kommersant FM” the question of the exchange Ukrainka Hope Savchenko Russians Alexander Alexandrov Evgeny Erofeev.
Pushkov recalled that the Minsk agreements provide for direct exchange, but there we are talking about prisoners of war. Because there is another case, he admits that the exchange will take place by returning Alexander and Yerofeyev for punishment serving in the homeland and the same actions of Russia in relation to Savchenko. This will be done in two separate events, Pushkov said, adding that it will exchange in fact but not in law.
Pushkov expressed the idea that if nothing goes wrong and does not intervene other political developments, this exchange should take place before the end of the year.
