Slobodian also said that "one of the letters that we recently received from the Russians indicates that they are supposedly ready for dialogue and hint at mirror measures." According to him, Russia "will try to initiate the exchange of [Ukrainian] soldiers on two Russian border guards" who were detained on the border with the Crimea "several months ago." In this case, the names of the Russians, he did not name.
Two violators of the state border, who later introduced themselves as servicemen of the Sumy border detachment of the State Border Service of Ukraine, were detained in the Bryansk region on October 3. The FSB 12 October reported that they were charged.
