President Volodymyr Zelensky does not consider the incident with the resignation letter of the head of the Office of the President Andriy Bohdan leaked to some prominent mass media as undermining credibility to mass media. Zelensky told it speaking to the journalists in Truskavets, as Ukrinform reported. “I undermined nothing. Our guys are united team. We do not hold on to our positions. I can repeat it again, ” the head of state said. Asked if he considered it as a normal situation that after they made public Bogdan's resignation letter, there was neither its official confirmation, nor its refutation by the President's Office, Zelensky said he did not understand what had to be refuted. “And what must have been refuted? He (Bogdan - ed.) wrote the letter of resignation, this is true. The person is willing to quit, when the society wants it, ” he said. IMI reported, the head of the Office of the President, Andriy Bohdan commented on misinformation about his resignation, said that the team of Volodymyr Zelensky did not need journalists as mediators to speak to people.

The “Dzerkalo tyzhdnya. Ukraina” reported that the report was spread by the deputy chairman of the Office of the President Kyrylo Tymoshenko ". Speaking to “Detektor Media”, Kyrylo Tymoshenko has denied that he had been the source of information about the alleged resignation of Andriy Bohdan. On August 2, the President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Andrei Bogdan had indeed written a letter of resignation. He explained that all of them, they had "agreed to do it from the beginning". The editor-in-chief of the weekly “Dzerkalo Tyzhdnya” Yuliya Mostova argued that person who had leaked the information to the press, he served as the source of manipulation, not the source of information.
