"Bogdan Lvov was not fired from the post of head of the CSC. Only the Cassation Economic Court of the Armed Forces determined its fate, finally putting an end to its reputation. It was a vote by which they self-determined themselves. And which cast a shadow over the entire Supreme Court", - reported in the CPC.

It is noted that 39 people out of 40 present took part in the voting. 21 people voted for the dismissal, but another vote was required for the decision, since the decision is considered adopted when the majority of employees vote, which is 43 people.

Bogdan Lvov stated that judges were pressured before voting and threatened with checks.

“A meeting of judges of the CCC SC made a very difficult decision, because each judge was offered a much easier way - “deprive, and everything will be fine with you”, if you don’t deprive, you will be assessed. prove that, nevertheless, the Supreme Court can not succumb to outside pressure, but remain precisely the Supreme Court", - said Lvov in comments sud.ua.

He also noted that he underwent two polygraph tests regarding his Russian citizenship.

"Two checks were passed. One check was carried out by the Association of Polygraph Examiners. And the second check was carried out in an authorized government agency and 100% not on my" order ". But the results of these checks, carried out according to different methods - both Ukrainian and American, on different equipment, they coincide. They prove that I was not involved in obtaining Russian citizenship and its passport", said the judge.

He also said that he was going to take a vacation, and hoped that during this time all the "i" would be dotted. And now, according to the law, it will be possible to return to the issue of early dismissal only after a year.
