MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. The issue on the possible handover of Ukrainian citizens convicted in Russia is currently on the agenda, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, giving no particular names.

"This issue has been repeatedly discussed during the contacts of working groups, it was mentioned by the Ukrainian side at the Berlin meeting of the Normandy Four group," Peskov said.

"Certain names are included in the agenda," he said, adding: "Not all of them may be classed in any category, in any case all of them are people who are convicted and serve their sentence upon a decision of a Russian court."

"No doubt, there are judicial procedures in case if any decisions are taken," Peskov said.
