Two civilian airplanes took off in the Moscow direction to return illegally detained in Russia Gennadiy Afanasyev and Yuriy Soloshenko. "UNN" reports this.
"Two civil aircraft flew to Russia. One of them will have to transfer the Ukrainians back home", reads the report.
Aircraft have to land at Vnukovo airport, where Ukrainians will go on board and return to Kyiv.
According to the "Crimea - the Realities", the mother of the convicted in Russia Gennadiy Afanasyev Olga arrived in Kyiv and looks forward to the return of her son to Ukraine.
She does not know any details of exactly when the planned exchange will take place, but hopes to see her son on Tuesday.
"I was told to come to Kyiv, if I am here, so there is a progress," Olga Afanasyeva said.
