"Come on, Avakov (Ukraine's Interior Minister - Ed.) and Lutsenko (Prosecutor General of Ukraine - Ed.) were reluctant to sit next to Leshchenko (Poroshenko Bloc faction MP - Ed.) and talk with the lawmaker "with-a-luxury-downtown-crib" about the fight against corruption. Well, there will be no interesting discussion. But you'd better look who is the special guest of this conference," she wrote.
