According to the Secretary of State, “Savchenko’s release after long ordeals, which included solitary confinement, is an important part of the fulfillment of Russia's obligations under the Minsk treaties.”
Her “release now should serve as an incentive for their (Minsk agreements) full implementation,” said Kerry.
The agency recalls that “on May 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree pardoning Ukrainian citizen Nadezhda Savchenko. She was exchanged for citizens of the Russian Federation Alexander Alexandrov and Yevgeny Yerofeyev. ”
