Moscow poised to hand over prisoner Savchenko to Ukraine: reports


Reports from both Ukraine and Russia say that kidnapped Ukrainian POW Lt. Nadiya Savchenko is on a plane home to Kyiv. She is being swapped for two Russian GRU (Spetznaz) soldiers captured in eastern Ukraine. A flight believed to be carrying Russian soldiers Yerofeyev and Aleksandrov has landed at Moscow's Vnukovo airport. President Petro Poroshenko is scheduled to talk to the Ukrainian people shortly.

It seems that Ms. Savchenko is indeed interested in politics. She was elected in-absentia to the Veronika Rada as an MP of the Batkivschina (Fatherland) party which is currently in opposition to the corrupt government of Petro Poroshenko.

Kudos to the countless thousands across the entire world who lobbied for and demanded Nadiya's release from Russian captivity. Putin and his security/judicial bodies badly miscalculated here. The international damage to Russia's reputation for kidnapping and holding Lt. Savchenko in captivity for 708 days and orchestrating a Soviet-style "show-trial" is incalculable.
