Kiev has not yet shown the necessary readiness and flexibility in the exchange of prisoners, said the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov.

«I do not know about it. I understand that the Russians, who were convicted and are in Ukraine, I want to get back home, but we did not know about the readiness of the Ukrainian side to take some steps», — said Peskov told reporters, answering the question of whether it is known to the Kremlin that Russian citizens who are in Ukrainian prisons wrote to the President of Russia a request to exchange them for the Ukrainians, who are in the territory of the Russian Federation.

He noted that all depends on who it is. «There are a lot of nuances. Until the Ukrainian side does not show the necessary willingness and flexibility», — said Peskov.
