The process of the exchange is to take place at the Rostov's airport. A presidential plane has left for Rostov-on-Don to exchange convicted GRU officers for Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko.

According to some sources, Savchenko has already come to Rostov for the exchange.

'The presidential plane with Russian officers Evgeniy Erofeev and Alexandr Alexandrov will leave Kyiv for Rostov-on-Don. The Ukrainian woman Nadiya Savchenko has already come there,' a source said.

The process of the exchange is to take place at the airport.

'Representatives of Russia’s law enforcement agencies that accompany Savchenko, are in Rostov-on-Don already. According to the mutual agreement, Ukrainian authorities will deliver two Russians detained in Ukraine.'

According to the source, the exchange will happen under the terms of further punishment – just like the parties have agreed before.

A petition for clemency of Russian officers Evgeniy Erofeev and Alexandr Alexandrov has been already submitted to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
