The incident happened on March 19 around midnight near the office of the company «Ukrtransnafta» in Kyiv, where the conflict in connection to the replacement of the company management was unfoling.

In the evening of March 19, Ihor Kolomoysky accompanied by armed men came to the office of «Ukrtransnafta» after it became known that the supervisory board of this state-owned enterprise removed Oleksander Lazorko from the position of the chairman of the etnerprise’s management board. 

After spending six houts in the office, Kolomoysky left the building, and the journalist asked him what the head of Dnipropetrovska Dnipropetrovska oblast state administration was doing at night in an office of a state company.
