The Ukrainian Convicts in Russia Yuri Soloshenko and Gennady Afanasiev* signed an agreement to serve their sentence in the territory of Ukraine, said the latter’s lawyer Alexander Popkov RIA Novosti.

“Now the negotiations on the transfer of Afanasiev and Soloshenko will go to the diplomatic level, everything is at the stage “just about”. Movement is all that is needed – we signed. This is a different paper, including consent to serving the sentence on the territory of Ukraine – it is one of the transfer mechanisms,” said Afanasiev’s lawyer Alexander Popkov.

Also, according to the defence, Soloshenko and Afanasiev wrote a petition to the President of Russia for a pardon, and signed a number of other papers necessary for the transfer of prisoners.
