Prisoner Swap Is Under Way Between Russia And Ukraine

A prisoner swap is under way between Russia and Ukraine

A statement from the President Office’s of Ukraine did not say who was being swapped, revealing only that the process was “ongoing”.

But a Ukrainian prosecutor earlier said those being freed include the filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and 24 Ukrainian sailors who were detained last year.

There has been no confirmation of the swaps from Russia.

Relatives of some of the detainees were reported to be gathering at airports in Kiev.

Rumours that a prisoner swap was imminent spread in recent days after Sentsov was moved to Moscow from a prison in Russia’s Arctic north.
