“The petition for reprieve for Yevgeniy Yerofeev and Alexandr Alexandrov has been handed for Ukrainian President’s signature”, said lawyer Valentin Rybin who represents Alexandrov in court.

In interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel, Rybin added he hopes that the procedure will be completed soon enough, since the process is being actively covered by the press. According to him, similar procedure is being conducted over Nadiya Savchenko in Russia. “By evening May 25, we will be able to figure out whether they will exchange Savchenko for Yerofeev and Alexandrov”, the lawyer said. 

In April, both Yerofeyev and Alexandrov were sentenced to 14 years in prison on charges of terrorist activity in the Donbas. They were wounded in a firefight and detained by Ukraine's Security Service agents near Schastya, Luhansk region in May 2015.
