SBU Counselor: Savchenko to be released in the near future
Yuriy Tandyt said this in an interview with Dozhd, Russian opposition TV channel
Ukrainian fighter pilot Nadiya Savchenko will be soon released from detention in Russia, said Yuriy Tandyt, the Counselor of Head of the SBU (Ukraine’s Security Service).
“We did everything within our authority, and we made up our mind which way we should continue. Now it’s up to the Kremlin. We know that in the near future, Nadiya Savchenko will be released. We are preparing for this”, he said.
Tandyt has been representing the Ukrainian side in ongoing negotiations to release Ukrainian civilians and military men since 2014.
Previously, Russian sources reported that Russia considers option to exchange Savchenko for a group of Russian citizens who serve their time in the United States. However, the U.S. Embassy in Moscow refuted that information.
