20 minutes after Turu leaves the office, Oleksandr Udovychenko came in. At that moment, Truba was on the phone with Andriy Bohdan and allegedly told him: "You know, I won’t let you down, everything I promised - we are right on that". According to a source, after hanging the phone, Truba allegedly retold the conversation to Udovychenko, noting: "Yosypovych says he praised me to the Americans. He says - give a result!".
