The deputy head of the President's Office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, said this to journalists at a briefing near the Verkhovna Rada, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“This was the initiative of the president. We are dealing with the issue of buying apartments for former prisoners, except for sailors for whom we have already purchased apartments. They will live in the same building. Other people who were among the 35 released ones will also receive apartments – this is a matter of one to two weeks,” Tymoshenko said.
