English Translation of Undated Ukraine Prosecutor General’s Memo

“In the end of March 2016, Mr. O.O. Kondratenko, the Head of a Department of the
Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, informed me that three U.S. citizens wanted to
make an appointment to see me. I agreed to see them. Those individuals turned out to
be Karen Tramontano, Sally Painter, and John Buretta. They turned out to be
representatives of the BlueStar Strategies company and, at the same time, Karen
Tramontano and Sally Painter said that in the past they had worked in President
Clinton’s Administration.

The purpose of their visit was an apology for dissemination of false information by U.S.
representatives and public figures on the activities of the Prosecutor General’s Office of
Ukraine in regards to the investigation of criminal activities of Zlochevsky. These
individuals noted that they had been aware that the Prosecutor General’s Office of
Ukraine had implemented all required steps for prosecution of Zlochevsky and that he
was released by the British court due to the underperformance of the British law
enforcement agencies.

I thanked these representatives for such an assessment of the activities of the

Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine and introduced them to the results of the reforms of the
Prosecutor’s departments, including the results published on the website of the
Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine.

The above mentioned individuals were surprised by this information and said that
entirely different information had been disseminated at the U.S. Department of State,
about the failure of the reforms at the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s Office, but, after they got
introduced to the materials provided, they realized that the information disseminated in
the U.S. was incorrect and that they would facilitate my visit to the U.S. for the purpose
of delivering the true information to the State Department management.

That visit was being prepared, but was cancelled after Yu.V. Lutsenko was nominated
for the position of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

Attachment: copies of the business cards that the above-mentioned individuals gave me
during the meeting.”
