Ukrainian journalist Stanislav Rechinsky announced on Facebook his details of this incident, however, which is standard for modern Ukrainian political culture. According to Rechinsky, this happened on October 30, 2019. As a result, Bogdan lost his tooth and since then has not appeared at his workplace.
As the journalist suggests, the “clarification of relations” occurred as a result of disagreements “between the parties” on the personnel issue - who should be appointed to the post of head of the SBU Main Investigation Department. Bakanov insisted on the candidacy of Major General Vasily Vovk. Bogdan, in turn, believed that the candidacy of the colonel of the SBU Dmitry Neskoromny more suitable. As a result, the parties did not come to an understanding, and the result is now reflected on the face of Bogdan.
It is noted that after the fight Zelensky signed Bakanov’s submission on the dismissal of two deputies: the first deputy chairman of the SBU, Lieutenant General Vladislav Bukharev and the mentioned colonel Neskoromny. But the president did not sign the submission for the dismissal of another deputy head of the SBU, Major General Anatoly Dublik.
It must be recalled that this is not the first conflict between Bakanov and Bogdan. In July 2019, Bogdan took offense at Bakanov for not agreeing with the president’s office on the appointment of employees in the SBU.
