Ukrinform correspondent Oleksandr Sushchenko is planning to return to journalism after returning from a Russian prison, and Oleksandr Kolchenko plans to continue his studies.

“Of course, I never left it (journalism – ed.).  I will return to near and dear agency Ukrinform”, Roman Sushchenko told reporters at the airport Borispol.

He said he wanted to “talk to colleagues, make friends, visit the grave of his father”.

Another released Ukrainian, Oleksandr Kolchenko, after five years in prison, expressed his desire to continue his studies at Taurida National University.

 “[I will study] in the same specialty – tourism.  [I will be] an agent for tourism organization,” Kolchenko said.

Asked if he was going to return to Russia’s annexed Crimea, he said: “When [Russian President Vladimir] Putin is overthrown, it is mandatory.”
