In the film they are raised, but also answered by well-known journalists who tried to investigate the Gongadze case, as well as Georgy's relatives and friends: Olena Prytula, Yevhen Hlibovytsky, Lavrentiy Malazonia, Oleg Yeltsov, Yulia Mostova, Serhiy Rachmanin, Mustafa Nayem, Serhiy Leshchenko, Oleksiy Stepura, Valery Kalnysh, Sevgil Musayeva, Koba Alania, Myroslava Gongadze, ” the press release read.
