Kyiv did not rule out the possibility of exchanging a Russian serviceman sentenced to life imprisonment Vadim Shishimarin. This was stated by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Irina Venediktova.
She noted that she could not comment on diplomatic issues, but the technical possibility of an exchange exists.
“I said that he can be exchanged as a person after a court verdict, technically it is possible. I don’t want to go into the exchange processes, this is politics and diplomacy,” Venediktova said on the air of the All-Ukrainian marathon.
The day before, a Ukrainian court found Shishimarin guilty of violating the laws and customs of war and sentenced him to life imprisonment. The serviceman’s defense intends to appeal the decision.
