Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has announced his readiness to exchange Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko if such a proposal is received.
"If the question is as follows: whether I am ready to make a decision to exchange [Savchenko] for some other person, today I will say for the first time that yes, I am ready. I, as president of Ukraine, am ready to use my constitutional right and exchange Nadiya, [ready] to do everything possible to bring her back home as soon as possible," Poroshenko said at a joint press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara on March 9, after talks between the two countries' delegations.
However, "there has not been a single time over these two years or so that a single proposal on exchanging Savchenko has arrived from sources that deserve trust," he added.
