Until the end of May we expect some positive news about Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, Ukrainian political prisoners detained in Russian Federation Yuriy Soloshenko and Gennadiy Afanasiev , - reported the first Deputy Chairman of Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko.
"Our humanitarian subgroup is doing a lot of work for the release of the hostages. We expect some positive decisions about the fate of Nadiya Savchenko, as well as political prisoners, who were held in Russia - Yuriy Soloshenko and Gennadiy Afanasiev to the end of the month. I want to note that the issue of releasing hostages is under the personal control of the President.
If we talk about the liberation of the hostages, who are now on the territories of occupied Donbas – there are 112 Ukrainians today, military and civilian, and the process of their release is blocked, the fighters demand to take an amnesty", - she said.
