“Me and Nadiya Savchenko discussed the scenario of pardoning. Now that she’s here, we know that it doesn’t’ have to be an exchange. Besides, in case of Soloshenko and Afanasyev, it doesn’t have to be an exchange on Russian citizens. President Poroshenko simply pardoned those convicts, the Ukrainian citizens. So, it seems to me that the most likely option is pardoning – after the negotiations on Karpyuk and Klykh are completed”, Novikov said in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.

The Russian lawyer reminded that Mykola Karpyuk and Stanislav Klykh are now in detention facility in Grozny, Chechnya. “The appeal we filed in late May will most likely be considered in July or August. Until it is considered, the verdict won’t take effect, and no procedure ending up in pardon will be possible until then”, he said.
