Ukraine and Russia are negotiating about exchange of several citizens, including Ukraine’s movie maker Oleg Sentsov. “Viktor Medvedchuk, Ukraine’s representative in the humanitarian subgroup of Minsk group, is especially active in this field. We’re talking several candidacies here. But, again, everything will depend – on our side, of course – on the ultimate decision of the head of our state”, Dmitriy Peskov said.
Ukrainian filmmaker Oleh Sentsov was arrested in Crimea in 2014. He was charged with 'organization of terrorist acts' on the peninsula. The court sentenced him to 20 years in a high-security penal colony in Russia.
