"The posted screenshot has nothing to do with any appointments. The correspondence with Aivaras concerned solely the possibility of future splitting the vacant position into two separate posts, which, according to my information, was to happen soon and was agreed by everyone concerned. That's why I so confidently referred to the names. Let me also recall that it was a friendly correspondence," he said.
"I would like to once again note that I talked my appointment with no one else except Aivaras, so all these "proofs" are worthless. Unfortunately, I'm being made a scapegoat in someone's dirty game, so I'm unwilling to provide any further justifications until the objective investigation into the case ends," he concluded.
