Russian President Vladimir Putin is not interested in the exchange of Nadiya Savchenko on Russian special force operators Evgeny Alexandrov and Alexander Yerofeyev who are imprisoned in Ukraine, because he considers Savchenko, as an object of political bargaining, reports "RBC Ukraine".
"Putin appreciates Nadiya not as a person but as a prize, some material substance, which, in general scenario can be put on the scales connected with other arrangements ... Many who say: let's change Savchenko on Erofeev, Alexandrov but he snap his fingers at them, if need be, he sells down the river a division or three. The issue is not the people, the question of financial and political interests, which he wants to cash in from all of this. Therefore, I believe that the pressure bear upon him evident and not will, finally lead to her release "- stated Polozov.
