Russia does not intend to exchange the illegally convicted Ukrainians on the list and the issue of the release of each Ukrainian hostage will be considered individually. Mark Feigin, the Russian advocate reported this to Radio Liberty.
He thinks that the return of the Ukrainian hostages in Russia will be agreed at the highest level as they are the 'precious resource' for Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia.
'Putin will not exchange the Ukrainian citizens on the list. It is more than just precious resource in comparison with the exchange of the captivated from the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the militants. He will attempt to exchange them on the 'one for one' formula', Feigin claimed.
The advocate added that his client Roman Sushchenko does not complain of state of his health at the moment.
'There are no problems with his health. But the situation with the court winds round, we finish familiarizing with case materials '.
Earlier the SBU reported that 103 people remain detained in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and dozens of them are in Russia.
As we reported earlier, the exchange of prisoners took place in Donbas on Dec. 27th. 73 Ukrainians were released in exchange for 233 militants. 24 Ukrainian servicemen were brought to the main military hospital, as they wanted to go through medical examination and treatment. The 74th released woman decided to stay in the occupied Donetsk.
