The chairman of the council of the “Other Ukraine” movement, Viktor Medvedchuk, in an interview with the French publication Omerta, said that he was released in September 2022 as a result of an exchange for foreigners.
“I was exchanged for foreigners who fought on Zelensky’s side and were captured by the Russian army. The exchange, as a result of which I was released, was multi-stage,” says the text of the interview published on the website of the “Other Ukraine” movement.
