"Following my previous post. Volodymyr Huzyr did give instructions on commencement of a criminal proceeding on the fact of "seizure of state institutions". Moreover, early in the morning the investigators conducting the criminal case against the detainees Korniiets and Shapakin, were called in and threatened with dismissal. As I see it, when this information started to leak, the president intervened summoning first Volodymyr Huzyr and Vasyl Hrytsak and then Davit Sakvarelidze. Finally, Poroshenko took the side of investigators and Davit Sakvarelidze, putting an end to the incident," he wrote.

"Where will the criminal proceeding go or was it registered in the registry is hard to find out so far. According to my source, Volodymyr Huzyr formally referred to the fact that Alpha special forces officers, breaking out doors in the office of the Deputy Head of the PGO Investigation Department, did not have the court's decision to search the Prosecutor's Office premises," the MP said.

"Which leads to a simple conclusion: the First Deputy Prosecutor General Volodymyr Huzyr was not aware of the impending operation against two high-ranking prosecutors. Given the prosecutor general is on vacation, this fact is at least surprising," Nayyem said.

"Obviously, Davit Sakvarelidze and investigators did not consider it necessary to inform the PGO administration of the operation. And in general, it's clear, given that Aleksandr Korniiets is a close friend of both Volodymyr Huzyr and Viktor Shokin. The other detainee, Volodymyr Shapakin was appointed after resignation of Yarema, in April 2015 and is also considered a Shokin's person," the MP resumed.
