President Viktor Yanukovych requested that Attorney General Oleksandr Medvedko conducted an investigation of the facts of involvement of law enforcement agencies in political processes stated in the letter of the first President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk.

The President took the matter under his personal supervision and instructed the Attorney General to promptly report to him on the results.

Earlier, ex-president Leonid Kravchuk (1991-1994) addressed the current head of state with a call to prevent law enforcement agencies and secret services from becoming the "tools of the political game".

The politician believes that "the threat of involving these structures in the political process is becoming more and more vivid". Thus, according to Kravchuk, the detention by the Security Service of Ukraine of former Customs Service head Anatoliy Makarenko, and later former deputy CEO of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine, Ihor Didenko, was an excessive measure, which was unnecessary.

As reported, on July 2 SBU brought charges against former chief of the State Customs Service Anatoliy Makarenko over official negligence when performing customs clearance for 11 billion cubic meters of gas in 2009 that Switzerland's RosUkrEnergo challenged at the Stockholm Arbitration Tribunal. Ihor Didenko, the former deputy CEO of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine, was detained by SBU on July 9 as part of investigating a criminal case opened on June 10 due to the damage caused to Ukraine following the consideration of a RosUkrEnergo lawsuit at the Stockholm Arbitration Tribunal.

On June 8, 2010, the Stockholm Arbitration Tribunal obliged NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine to return 11 billion cubic meters of natural gas to RosUkrEnergo and a further 1.1 billion cubic meters of gas in lieu of RosUkrEnergo's entitlement to penalties for breach of contract.
