Russian Intelligence Servicemen Alexander Alexandrov and Yevgeniy Yerofeyev are not the only ones, but simply the most famous Russian military, who were detained in Donbas, said the lawyer of Nadiya Savchenko Ilya Novikov.

"The Russian servicemen Alexandrov and Yerofeyev and not the only ones, there are another Russian military who were detained on the territory of Ukraine during the hostilities. But they are the only ones which are well known, they are ... well, let's not talk in captivity - they are in custody, they are detained. And media hasn’t enough information about the rest of them, "- said Novikov.

Novikov: PACE resolution not likely to help Savchenko

At the same time, he expressed the opinion that this is more a negative fact.

"I do not think that is good when no one knows does the Ukrainian side have in custody other Russian citizens. It is unknown whether they are military or not, we do not have enough information. If we’ll have such, it could be a constant pressure on Putin. There is no such pressure, so it complicates the process and reduce our ability for exchanges ", - said the lawyer.
