The Ukrainian and Russian leaders cleared through the procedure of releasing officer of Ukraine’s Air Force Nadiya Savchenko. Petro Poroshenko said this during his joint briefing with Lars Rasmussen, Prime Minister of Denmark.  

As Ukraine’s President, I am especially concerned about releasing Ukrainians from the Russian detention; and My Danish counterpart can confirm that this matter is of priority for Ukraine during all international meetings. I have repeatedly said I’m ready to set the wheels in motion so as to return Nadiya Savchenko and other Ukrainian citizens back to Motherland. I underline that when it comes to human life, one needs to put aside all sorts of politics and ensure the return as soon as possible. That’s why I started this dialogue with Putin. I guess we managed to agree on a certain procedure of releasing Nadiya”, Poroshenko said.
