Sviatoslav Tseholko, the press secretary of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, says the Foreign Ministry of Kyrgyzstan helped organize a phone conversation with a person who introduced himself as President Almazbek Atambayev of Kyrgyzstan.

Tseholko wrote this on his page in Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to Tseholko, the investigation has established that some employees of the foreign ministry of Kyrgyzstan were involved and gave contact phones of the Presidential Administration of Kyrgyzstan to pranksters.

Tseholko says the audio record of the phone conversation published by pranksters on Thursday had been edited.

According to Tseholko, the audio record does not contain fragments that could do harm to the Russian authorities. This fact shows, according to Tseholko, that Russian secret services stand behind the incident.

Tseholko believes that the incident was organize because President Poroshenko had a lot of phone conversations with many leaders of countries before the vote at the UN GA Third Committee for the resolution on the human rights situation in Crimea on November 15.

Tseholko also published a fragment of the phone conversation between Poroshenko and the pranksters.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Ukrainian presidential press service announced on November 2, 2016 that President of Ukraine Poroshenko and President Atambayev of Kyrgyzstan held a telephone conversation, during which they discussed the need to intensify trade and economic cooperation between their countries.

On November 3, the press released was removed from the website of President Poroshenko. The Presidential Administration of Ukraine has not provided official comments on the matter.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs' spokesperson Mariana Betsa has commented on the issue to the press.
