Lutsenko’s remarks came in an interview given to LB.ua, commenting on the statement of the Synodal Information Department of the UOC (MP).

“We were staying at the same floor in a corridor. I came up to him – his physical condition was grave. I saw that this man was almost driven to early death. All the medical records were taken away from Drabynko... I reiterate all the records of Volodymyr’s medical history were taken away from him. You know how a patient can be treated,” he stressed.

Lutsenko also said that according to the investigation it was [then-President Viktor] Yanukovych who ordered former Interior Minister Zakharchenko to detain Metropolitan Volodymyr and Metropolitan Oleksandr (Drabynko) to force the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) to resign in favor of Yanukovych’s crony - Metropolitan Anthony (Pakanych).
