The Kremlin does not confirm a statement by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin has allegedly promised to release or exchange Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko after the trial ends in Russia, according to Russian news agency TASS.
"I do not know about such agreements," Dmitry Peskov, Russian Presidents spokesman, says.
Peskov referred to his statement made on Tuesday (March 22) when he said that Russia would abide by its national legislation in any case.
"In all other respects only the president can make such a decision. I cannot say for now what decision will follow there," Peskov noted.
