Putin pardons Nadia Savchenko. Russia and Ukraine exchange captives

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to pardon Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko. Savchenko has already landed in Kiev, Putin's press secretary, Dmitry Peskov told reporters May 25. 

The plane carrying Nadia Savchenko has landed at the Boryspil airport near Kiev. An hour before that, a plane with Russian citizens on board - Alexander Alexandrov and Yevgeni Yerofeyev - has landed in Moscow at Vnukovo. In ukraine, the two Russians were referred to as "GRU fighters" (GRU is a Russian acronym for Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian General Staff). 

Russia has thus exchanged Nadia Savchenko for two Russian citizens, who were arrested in Ukraine.
