Wife of Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, serving time in an American prison, hoping for the possibility of exchange for American Paul Whelan, who on Monday was convicted in Russia for espionage.

Whelan was detained in Moscow in late 2018 during spy promotions. On Monday, the Moscow city court sentenced him to 16 years in a strict regime colony. The American in the final statement said that espionage was not involved. His defense argues that he became a victim of provocation.
