At the same time, the Kremlin said it knew nothing about Medvedchuk’s whereabouts.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that Putin’s godfather, Viktor Medvedchuk, who was exchanged for Mariupol defenders, has left Turkey for the Russian Federation.
The Turkish leader announced this on September 23, writing “Anatolia“.
According to RT Erdogan, the list of persons to be replaced included the name of a person whose extradition Russian President Vladimir Putin personally demanded. “President Putin specifically demanded one person. We have already sent him to Russia,” the Turkish president said.
We are probably talking about Viktor Medvedchuk, the head of the Kremlin.
It is worth noting that after the exchange of prisoners, there was no news about Medvedchuk in the Russian information field. In addition, the spokesman of the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, stated in general that “the Kremlin does not know where Medvedchuk is now and does not comment on his change.”
We will remind you that on September 21, it became known about the exchange of prisoners in the territory of several countries: Poland, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the border of Ukraine and the Russian Federation. 200 heroes of Ukraine exchanged for Putin’s godfather Viktor Medvedchuk, and “Azovstal” commanders – 55 for the occupiers. Thus, the commanders of the Ukrainian “Azovstal” released from Russian captivity – (Denis Prokopenko “Redis”, Serhiy Volynsky “Volyna”, Svyatoslav Palamar “Kalyna”, Denis Shlega and Oleg Khomenko), will live in Turkey in a private house until the end of the war.
