“President of Ukraine and I, as the country’s representative in the Minsk humanitarian subgroup, informed you that we had expected positive news by late May. This operation to release Nadiya has been designed for the last several months. We were really concerned, hoping that everything works fine”, the Ukrainian official said.
Nadiya Savchenko’s plane landed in Ukriane at about 3 p.m. on Wednesday. The Ukrainian fighter pilot was exchanged for servicemen of Russian military intelligence Alexandr Alexandrov and Yevgeniy Yerofeev.
