And today, Monday, all of a sudden there is another meeting. At this meeting, I am shown the protocol, that I refused to explain in detail why I came to work on Thursday at 12 pm. I wrote on the record that the information was incorrect and I did not refuse. Within an hour, I brought a more detailed report to the administration as to why I came to work later on April 8. But by that time the order for my dismissal was already there,” says Ruslan Badamshyn.
