Fictional memories of Holomsha and Zamana are political PR which does not meet historical truth, – NSDC

General Volodymyr Zamana and former Deputy Prosecutor General Mykola Holomsha were not speaking at the meeting of the National Security Council on Feb. 28, 2014.

The supplementary explanation of the press service of the National Security and Defense Council concerning the transcript of the NSDC meeting of Feb. 28, 2014 reads, Censor.NET informs.

"Concerning the ongoing speculations in the media about the transcript of the NSDC meeting of Feb. 28, 2014, we provide further clarification for those who are trying to make it a base for biased political PR. The transcript of the meeting of the NSDC of Feb. 28, 2014 was issued in accordance with all applicable requirements. There are no speeches by Volodymyr Zamana and Mykola Holomsha because they did not speak at the meeting during the official discussion and, therefore, did not make any proposals for decision-making. Their recollections are fictitious political PR and do not correspond to the historical truth. All the participants of the events could disprove these lies, as Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov has done," the report reads.
