Lawyers representing Russian soldiers Alexandr Alexandrov and Yevgeniy Yerofeev say they will soon file a petition on behalf of their clients asking Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to pardon both of them. Yerofeev and Alexandrov were captured in eastern Ukraine last year.

“Today, the court sentence in Yerofeev and Alexandrov’s case took effect. No appeal has been filed by the defense team so far. In the near future, we will file it for the President to pardon the citizens of the Russian Federation”, Sokolovskla wrote.   

In April, both Yerofeyev and Alexandrov were sentenced to 14 years in prison on charges of terrorist activity in the Donbas.
