A pilot from Rostov-on-Don, convicted in the United States, was exchanged for an American student. The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, confirmed this information on April 27. Konstantin Yaroshenko was traded for Trevor Reed.

– As a result of a long negotiation process, on April 27, 2022, US citizen Trevor Rowdy Reed, previously convicted in Russia, was exchanged for Russian citizen Konstantin Yaroshenko. In 2010, an American court sentenced him to 20 years in prison, – Maria Zakharova wrote on her page on social networks.

Recall that Konstantin Yaroshenko was arrested in Liberia. He was brought to the United States, where he was charged with drug smuggling. Rostov spent about 12 years in the Fort Dix colony, which is located in the state of New Jersey.

In 2018, Konstantin was transferred to the Connecticut Supervisory Institution. This is the place where the convicts are reformed. They are provided with jobs and social support.
