Two prisoners (Ruslan Gadzhiev and Taras Sinichak) refused to be part of the swap and were replaced.

Ruslan Gadzhiev, who is listed as being exchanged, refused to leave Ukraine, considering himself innocent, according to Valentin Rybin, a lawyer for Russian citizens who were held in Ukraine. Gadzhiev had been arrested in the Donbass in January 2015.

Taras Sinichakis now in Ivano-Frankivsk, where he is being held under house arrest, according to his lawyer Yaroslav Zeykan. On August 19, SBU officers offered to take him to Koncha-Zaspa where other exchange participants were waiting for their departure to Moscow. However, Sinichak refused because he considers himself a citizen of Ukraine, does not admit any guilt and does not want to be extradited to Russia.

Taras Sinichak worked in the military sanatorium “Sudak” in Crimea. After the annexation of Crimea, the institution became subordinate to the Ministry of Defense of Russia. Sinichak did not leave Crimea and went on working in the sanatorium. He was arrested in February 2016 when he moved to mainland Ukraine to attend the funeral of a relative. The prosecutor’s office regarded this as desertion and high treason.
